Taking Stock: How Did We Get Here?

IVDR is a set of rules and guidelines that are used to regulate the production and use of medical devices and tests that are used to diagnose diseases and conditions in a laboratory setting.

Beginning with the approval of the IVDR transition in late 2021, and continuing up to an assessment of the current workload and suggested timelines for “getting it all done,” the webinar featuring Galamba will cover the following:

  • Implications of IVDR transition by device class
  • Current notified body capacity and timelines
  • The top IVDR guidance docs and templates
  • Prioritizing your IVDR workload
  • Tallying the cost of IVDR compliance 

Plus, expect a look at the most recent news from Switzerland and the EU Commission, as well as what to anticipate in 2023.

IVDR is straining the industry by introducing new requirements and challenges that must be met to achieve compliance. This is proving costly and time-consuming, requiring significant changes to be made industry-wide. 

Some of the most significant changes include:

  • Increased regulatory oversight: IVDR introduces new requirements for the evaluation, registration, and certification of IVD products. This means that manufacturers, distributors, and users of IVD products must comply with a range of new rules and guidelines in order to ensure that their products are safe, effective, and accurate.
  • New classification categories: IVDR introduces new classification categories for IVD products, which are based on their level of risk and complexity. This means that different products will fall into different categories, and they will be subject to different requirements and regulations.
  • Clinical trials and performance evaluations: IVDR requires manufacturers of certain IVD products to conduct clinical trials and performance evaluations in order to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of their products. This can be costly and time-consuming, and it may require manufacturers to make significant changes to their production processes and quality control systems.

In short, IVDR is causing significant changes in the IVD industry while creating new challenges and opportunities for manufacturers of IVD products.
