Abstract: During this 2-day conference, international IVD regulatory experts will cover key aspects of upcoming changes to the European regulatory environment, such as IVDR, REACH and BPR. This conference will help you navigate bringing both new and legacy products into compliance, and the impact of the changing regulations on new product development. Regulatory experts will discuss lessons learned and pain points identified when transitioning from IVDD to IVDR.

A particular emphasis of this conference will be on understanding how IVDR and other regulations will affect the raw materials used in IVD manufacturing, including raw materials of high concern such as biocidal products.  We will discuss the current regulatory situation, how to navigate ambiguous cases, and the use of new biocidal products. You will learn about raw materials that are currently included in the REACH Authorization List as well as materials of concern that may be included in the future.
