SGS to Host Webinar to Define the Scope of ISO 13485 and How it Applies to IVD Manufacturers

November 09, 2021
MD 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 Directive on in vitro diagnostics, 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 IVD Regulation.

Reaching that compliance goal is a difficult journey and a significant first step will be to achieve accredited certification for their quality management system (QMS) with ISO 13485:2016, the dedicated medical device and IVD QMS standard.

Join this webinar and gain an overview of the key benefits of ISO 13485 certification, as a standalone product, and how it applies to IVD manufacturers. We will also explain how achieving ISO 13485 certification is a stepping stone towards In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Regulations compliance.
