SESSIONS AND DATES:
1. Classification and conformity assessment route
The classification of IVD devices is undergoing a significant change under the IVDR. Previously, IVD devices were classified on a list basis, and now under the IVD regulation the classification is based on the risk of the device. In the first session of our IVDR training course we will focus on the key changes and new requirements related to the new IVD device classification system and conformity assessment routes.
• Prerequisites for classification and how to classify your devices
• How to choose right conformity routes
2. QMS requirements and obligations for economic operators
IVDR Article 10 (8) describes the minimum QMS requirements, but it is not the only section of the Regulation you need to take into account when updating your quality management system. In addition to process updates, we will also discuss the role and requirements for the person responsible for the regulatory compliance (PRRC), and what are the obligations for various economic operators in the supply chain.
• How to ensure your QMS complies with the IVDR requirements
• New obligations for economic operators

Well-structured and adequate content of the technical documentation can significantly speed up the review process by the notified body.

What is a good way to demonstrate that you have all the evidence to show that your IVD device complies with the GSPR?
• Interpreting the requirements for technical documentation
• How to create files that are easy to use
4. Risk Management
Risk management system needs to be maintained through the whole device lifecycle and aligned with other quality processes such as performance evaluation, usability, feedback, change management and CAPA process. In this session we will also review the links between IVDR, ISO 14971:2019 and ISO 13485:2016.
• Interpreting the requirements for risk management
• Special risk management considerations for IVDs

5. Clinical performance evaluation
The IVDR mandates to compile a performance evaluation report (PER) for each device, addressing scientific validity, analytical performance, and clinical performance. The report shall be part of the technical documentation. The focus in this session will be in the requirements and key factors for compliance.
• Performance evaluations – what data do you need and what sources you can use
• Requirements and expectations for Scientific Validity, Analytical Performance, Clinical Performance
6. Post market surveillance
In this session we will focus on the PMS and vigilance requirements and their relations to ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 14971:2019 (and certain IMDRF guidelines). We will also get familiar with the terminology and incident and adverse event reporting essentials.
