The European Commission’s Medical Device Coordination Group (MDCG) released a guidance on the classification of in vitro diagnostics (IVDs) under the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR). The guide provides industry a clarification on how to accurately classify diagnostics under the IVDR’s risk-based classification system.

“In particular, the conformity assessment route is highly dependent on classification, which is reflected in concepts such as conformity assessments scrutiny of class D devices (Article 50), the involvement of the European Union reference laboratories for high-risk devices (Article 100) and a consultation with a national medicines agency or the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for companion diagnostics (Article 48(3)),” the guidance states.
