Quality and Regulatory

Uncertainty in compliance is a business risk that clinical laboratories face worldwide

Are you IVD Ready?

Clinical laboratories are constantly challenged by an increasingly complex regulatory environment. The FDA has now issued draft guidance on the regulation of Laboratory Developed Tests (LDTs), while previous guidance has also indicated concerns over use of research use only (RUO) products in clinical labs. Unclear over the regulation of their LDT‘s in future, laboratory businesses are facing the unknown.

The European clinical industry also faces a looming transition with new legislation due to replace the current IVD directive 98/79/EC. 

This proposes changes in the scope of IVD, classification, conformity assessment and clinical evidence requirements. In Asia, the Chinese FDA has seen major regulation changes under a new leadership with ongoing uncertainty over interpretation.

The majority of the global diagnostics market is anticipating a regulatory transition leaving diagnostic business leaders with concerns over how to mitigate risk, get ahead of the regulation and STAY AHEAD!
