The IVDR requirements have brought new challenges to manufacturers who make diagnostic devices for the European market. Manufacturers are facing reclassification and new certification requirements for their products.

  • Strategies for performing the gap analysis to facilitate the new Technical File construction following the IVDR requirements
  • Processes for manufacturers to be fully in compliance on all changes that will occur under the IVDR
