With an estimated value of nearly £10 billion within Europe, now there has been a formal acceptance of the new IVD regulation the IVD medical device industry anticipates it will be impacted. A wide range of devices are encompassed under the umbrella of IVD medical devices including pregnancy tests and blood sugar monitoring systems for diabetes.

“The All-Ireland IVD Symposium in Dublin has been organised to help IVD companies prepare for the new regulation and gain access to Notified Bodies,” explained Seamus Kearney of ARC Regulatory, organisers of the event. “It is believed around 90–95% of IVD companies will need a Notified Body as a result of the new regulation, so we have invited representatives from three of the major Notified Bodies, National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI), UL and British Standards Institution (BSI). It is the first All-Ireland event of its kind for the IVD industry and we are very much looking forward to bringing the IVD industry together in a context of education and collaboration.”
