RECORDED WEBINAR: Changing In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulations: A Deep Dive into the New EU Requirements for Clinical Evidence

August 19, 2016

The assessment of the execution of clinical evaluation and clinical investigation in the EU is subject to the Directives. With the new IVD Regulation and 5-year transition, manufacturers need to be prepared now to meet the requirements in place when their device is being assessed for certification. In order to avoid rework and time needed for re-submission, it’s critical to start establishing processes that align with the new requirements as soon as possible.

In this 60-minute session, presented in front of a live audience August 18, 2016, Sue Spencer, Head of Global Medical Device Services, shared her experience on what exactly has changed, what that means for device manufacturers, how to address existing devices that now fall under the regulation and how the Notified Bodies will approach the updated requirements.
