Course overview

In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation 2017/746

The IVDR will replace the current EU Directive on in Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices (98/79/EC) and will be effective in all EU member and EFTA states. This means that there are significant changes in requirements compared to the previous IVD Directive. Through this training, you'll gain clarity on exactly what has changed, as well as practical guidance for updating your quality system, economic operator oversight, labelling and technical documentation.  

Our industry-leading experts have created this 16 hour course to give you an appreciation for the changes and new requirements of the IVDR and provide practical skills and guidance on how to transition to the new regulation.
