Your participation in the regulatory community is vital. Currently, RAPS Chapter in-person events are converted to webcasts so that regulatory professionals have online access to valuable knowledge necessary to understand the daily impact on our industry. RAPS is offering this webcast for free to members and $20 for non-members.


The European Union’s In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR) replaces the existing In Vitro Diagnostics Directive (IVDD) beginning 26 May 2022, which is not as far out as it seems. The new regulation’s requirements are much more prescriptive and stringent than the IVDD, so manufacturers will need to begin preparing now to transition their devices to certify under the IVDR. IVD companies have the duration of this transition period to update and adjust technical documents and action plans to meet the standards.

Participate in this webcast with two industry experts, Sue Spencer and Dr. Julien Senac, Ph. D., on a Brexit update and presentations on EU IVDR strategies to help you navigate the new regulation’s higher level of scrutiny. 

Learning objectives for this webcast: 

  • Understand the current impact of Brexit on CE Marked IVD devices.
  • Differences between IVDR and IVDD 
  • How IVD companies can approach their compliance initiatives. 

The webcast will conclude with a Q&A session. 

This event is brought to you by the RAPS Atlanta chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.5 RAC recertification credits.
