FIRST IVDR CERTIFICATE ISSUED BY TÜV SÜD

The new In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Regulation (IVDR, EU 2017/746) of the European Union replaces Directive 98/79/EC on In Vitro Medical Devices (IVDD). It represents a significant regulation change which imposes stricter demands on medical device manufacturers and Notified Bodies. To date, 4 of the 11 Notified Bodies which have applied for designation under IVDR have received designation and are published on the NANDO webpage.

TÜV SÜD is pleased to announce that it has issued the first IVDR certificate, a certificate for a Class B device.

“Since receiving designation and notification, TÜV SÜD has been working hard on reorganising and preparing resources to provide services under the new legislative framework. We have continued to clarify open questions and implement newly published information about the IVDR into our processes. The release of our first IVDR certificate is a significant milestone. The challenge now lies in balancing our existing IVDD projects with the strong demand for IVDR services in this transition period”, says Dr Andreas Stange, Vice President / Medical & Health Services at TÜV SÜD.

"Our issue of the first IVDR certificate in such a short time after receiving our designation as a Notified Body, demonstrates our commitment under this new status to support effective implementation of the IVDR and a smooth transition from the old directive to the new regulation. It is critical that a continued supply of safe and effective medical devices is available for patients and healthcare professionals”, adds Dr Royth von Hahn, Senior Vice President / Global Head of Medical & Health Services at TÜV SÜD.
