Update to IVD Directive

Please note the IVD Directive 98/79/EC and Common Technical Specifications have been amended.

Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) assays for blood screening, diagnosis and confirmation are now classed as an "Annex II - List A" device. With this, manufacturers must follow a higher order conformity assessment procedure involving a notified body before the CE mark is affixed to the device. (In most cases, Annex IV including sections 4 & 6). As per Annex IV, section 3 is NOT sufficient. The Common Technical Specifications (CTS) have also been amended accordingly.

Both amendments can be found at the following links:

  • COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 2011/100/EU of 20 December 2011 amending Directive 98/79/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on in-vitro diagnostic medical devices

  • COMMISSION DECISION 2011/869 of December 2011 amending Decision 2002/364/EC on common technical specifications for in-vitro diagnostic medical devices
