Published in May 2017 the IVDR will replace the existing In-Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Directive (98/79/EC) (IVDD). The IVDR provides a gradual transition into the new regulatory framework to avoid market disruption and allow a smooth transition from the directive to the regulation. Are you ready for the May 2022 deadline? While the deadline might seem far off, manufacturers need to start taking action to achieve compliance.
