Medical devices webinar

With significant regulatory changes underway for market access to the EU, IVD medical device manufacturers need to be aware that the compliance requirements that they face for the new EU IVD Regulation are changing dramatically.

Under the current EU Directive, only about 20% of the higher risk IVD devices require Notified Body certification, but this will change to an estimated 80% of all devices under the new EU IVDR.

Certification to this key quality management system standard (ISO 13485) is the first phase of your regulatory compliance journey and lays the foundation for meeting your regulatory obligations.

The agenda for this invaluable webinar is:

  • Introduction
  • Scope and benefits of ISO 13485:2016
  • IVD medical devices – major regulatory changes
  • ISO 13485 to support IVD compliance journey
  • How SGS can help
  • Q&A
