There are significant changes in the European legislation applicable to IVDs. The IVDR (In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation) (EU 2017/746) has replaced the IVD Directive (98/79/EC) and will impose new requirements on Legal Manufacturers whose devices will be re-classified (devices higher than Class A) due to the rules associated with these changes.
