Amending Regulation for MDR / IVDR: Key Takeaways for the Diagnostics Industry

The EU Parliament adopted the regulation amending EU 2017/745 (MDR) and EU 2017/746 (IVDR) aiming to protect patients by ensuring the availability of safe devices that are essential for healthcare systems. The amending regulation extends the transition periods for certain IVDs (legacy devices and in-house devices) subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions and introduces a gradual rollout of EUDAMED and a new obligation for manufacturers to give a prior notice in case of disruption of supply. Veranex looks forward to the formal adoption by the European Council and the publication in the official journal of the EU. In the meantime, here’s a quick overview of the changes put forward by the amending regulation:

2024 IVDR Sprint: 6 Reasons Why You Should Start a Performance Evaluation Early

In accordance with Article 5(3) of Regulation (EU) 2017/746 (IVDR), a performance evaluation must be drawn up for every IVD placed on the European market, regardless of the device’s risk class (Yes, even class A devices require a proper performance evaluation!). The performance evaluation is based on a continuous process and follows a defined and methodologically sound procedure, taking into consideration the established device-specific plan, i.e., the Performance Evaluation Plan (PEP). See why it’s always a good idea to start the performance evaluation process as early as possible.

New Proposal for Extended Transition Periods for IVDs: Can Manufacturers Slow Down Transition Efforts?

The EU Commission recently published (January 23, 2024) a new proposal for amending the regulations EU 2017/745 (MDR) and EU 2017/746 (IVDR) aiming to protect patients by ensuring availability of safe devices that are essential for healthcare systems. With this proposal, the EU Commission is proposing to extend transition periods for certain IVDs (legacy devices and in-house devices) subject to fulfillment of certain conditions, gradual roll out of EUDAMED, and introducing a new obligation for manufacturers to give a prior notice in case of disruption of supply.

Technical Documentation under the Medical Device and In Vitro Diagnostic Regulations (MDR and IVDR)

A medical device can only be placed on the European market once the manufacturer declares conformity of the device with applicable European Union (EU) regulations. Manufacturers provide evidence for conformity with the applicable regulations using a set of documents that comprehensively describe the medical device, including, among many other aspects, the intended purpose, design, manufacturing, verification and its validation. This set of documentation is called Technical Documentation (TD). The expected content of a TD is set out in Annexes II and III of Medical Device Regulations EU 2017/745 (MDR) and EU 2017/746 (IVDR).
