It is crucial for regulatory professionals to know how to implement the requirements of the EU In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR ) within their companies to be assured of obtaining CE marking in time to meet the IVDR deadline.
The format is organized as a workshop on how to fulfill the requirements of the IVDR rather than a presentation of the IVDR requirements and objectives. Roughly 85% or more of the IVD products currently on the market are self-certified and have not been scrutinized by a notified body, but will require notified body oversight for IVDR CE certification. The workshop will look at what we know and have learned since last year, building the new requirements and processes into the QMS to support pre- and postmarket devices, and know the extent of IVDR technical documentation and handling of "legacy data" to successfully assemble a technical documentation file.
The workshop is aimed at professionals who are already familiar with the IVDR and are looking to build practical experience. Participants will benefit from working on challenge exercises and hands on case studies, structured to stimulate discussion and activity on the topic or project.
