In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation
Medical Standards and schemes
The In-Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Device Regulation is approaching the final stages of the review process before becoming law and is the proposed revision to the existing IVD Directive 98/79/EC.
LRQA provides accredited certification and training services to ISO 13485, the quality management system requirement for manufacturers of medical devices.
LRQA is accredited by the SCC to ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 13485:2016 under Canadian Medical Device Conformity Assessment System (CMDCAS) requirements and is recognized by Health Canada under the Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System (CMDCAS) in accordance with the requirements of Q90R0 Policy on CMDCAS.
We’re designated as a notified body under the medical devices directive for medical devices using the quality system conformity routes laid out in Annexes II, V and VI.
Recognizing that a global approach to assuring the safety of medical device manufacturing would provide tremendous benefit to the industry and the end user, the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) has created a harmonized approach to auditing and monitoring the manufacturing of medical devices.
As with the upcoming In-Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Device Regulation, the proposed Medical Device Regulation (MDR) is also approaching the final stages of development before becoming law as a Regulation.
