The technical file for In-Vitro Diagnostic medical devices refers to all the documents that an IVD manufacturer has to submit to demonstrate that the product conforms to the applicable and current In-Vitro Diagnostic medical device regulations.
Technical files for such devices shall include, e.g. a detailed description of the device and specification, reference to the previous and similar generation of the device, design information, pre-clinical testing information, performance evaluation, and risk management of the medical device.
Technical file for IVD devices shall be prepared by the IVD device manufacturer and the information’s in the technical file or technical file for In-Vitro Diagnostic medical devices must be presented in a clear, organized, readily searchable, and unambiguous manner to demonstrate the safety and performance of the IVD medical device in question.
Want to prepare an IVD medical device technical file as per the requirement of MDR 2017/746? If your answer is yes, you probably have lots of questions about the preparation of medical device technical files such as;
We at Maven Profcon Services LLP., shall give you all the answers.
In-Vitro Diagnostic Medical device technical file shall be prepared as per the requirement of Annex II and Annex III of MDR 2017 / 746.
The technical file shall be submitted to the notified body or competent authority for review and approval for CE Certification. It should be made in the English language or the official language of an EU member state.
Technical documentation, declarations of conformity, and copies of all relevant certificates should now be retained for a period of 10 years after the last device has been placed on the market by the Manufacturers, authorized representatives, and importers of in vitro diagnostic devices.
Economic operators of in vitro diagnostic devices are now responsible for keeping supply chain records for the 10-year retention period noted in Article (10)(7) of these new regulations.
EU IVDR at several instances (Annex IX.6, Annex X.6 and Annex XI.6) require manufacturers (or their authorized representatives) to keep the following records for 10 years after the last device has been placed on the market:
Lastly, Annex XIV-Chap II.3 requires sponsors of clinical trials for IVD medical devices to keep application forms, investigators’ brochures, and performance study plans and other similar documents for 10 years after the end of any clinical performance study. If the device is placed on the market, the retention period becomes 10 years after the last device has been placed on the market.
