Impact of the new IVD-R and MD-R on eIFUs

Next to major changes on regulation regarding the classification of products and on the performance evaluations studies for IVD and regarding the new requirements on clinical evidence and clinical investigation studies for MD, also the regulation regarding IFU’s has changed.

In Annex I, Chapter III, Point 20.1 of the regulation for IVD’s or Annex I, Chapter III, Point 23.1 of the regulation for MD’s is written: ”Each device shall be accompanied by the information needed to identify the device and its manufacturer, and by any safety and performance information relevant to the user or any other person, as appropriate. Such information may appear on the device itself, on the packaging or in the instructions for use, and shall, if the manufacturer has a website, be made available and kept up to date on the website…”

Because of this new regulation, you must set up a system to make the IFU’s available on your website. Why not turn this obligation into an opportunity and leave out the paper IFU’s at the same time, saving on paper and logistics cost and making use of all the advantages a flexible digital carrier is offering?
