Course Description

Pathways to CE Marking under the In Vitro Diagnostics Directive

Course Description:

This course provides an in-depth review of all aspects of the in vitro diagnostic regulations in Europe including their classifications, which conformity assessment routes are applicable, how to consider the essential requirements and what the post market surveillance requirements are to keep in vitro diagnostic devices safe on the European market.

The course is based on the requirements of the current directive 98/79/EC. However, since the new draft regulation has already been published, a specific course is developed to outline the potential future requirements.
