STOCKHOLM, Aug. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Devyser has today been certified under the new, more comprehensive IVD Regulation that came into force on May 26, 2022. The certification, issued by the notified body TÜV SÜD, covers Devyser’s quality management system and fetal diagnostics product. The approval strengthens Devyser’s position in the market and confirms the company’s long-term focus on quality and patient safety.
From May 26, 2022, all new medical devices to be sold in Europe will have to comply with the new IVD Regulation that defines enhanced quality and safety requirements for diagnostic use of medical devices to ensure the highest level of public health protection. For a product to meet the requirements, the company’s quality management system must, among other things, be certified in accordance with the regulation.
“We have worked intensively over the past two years to meet the more comprehensive requirements of the IVD Regulation. Our customers can be reassured to know that our fetal diagnostics product has already been approved. Further, it shows that Devyser has a development and quality organization that can compete with the best in Europe,” says Fredrik Alpsten, CEO of Devyser.
In Europe, medical devices for in vitro diagnostics must be CE marked in accordance with Directive 98/79/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council in order to be sold on the market. The new regulation, known as the IVDR (EU) 2017/746, replaced the previous directive on May 26, 2022, which means that products need to undergo a new approval process. Devyser’s fetal diagnostics product has been approved under the new regulation and the company is now certified to continue registering new and existing products in accordance with the new EU regulation.
“The transition to the IVD Regulation is a major challenge for the industry in general. This certification is a sign of our relentless commitment to and focus on quality and patient safety. We are proud to be able to offer our customers this assurance,” says Theis Kipling, CCO of Devyser.
