The IVDR poses great challenges for manufacturers of in vitro diagnostics. It is strongly recommended that companies deal with the changes and implement the new requirements at an early stage. Both new and existing products on the market must be re-certified according to the IVDR. The implementation of the new regulation is time consuming and associated with and high costs. Important changes include the risk classification of products, stricter requirements for clinical evaluation and for post-market surveillance of in vitro diagnostics. The IVDR will also affect the cooperation between Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Private Label Manufacturer (PLM).
