Performance Studies grow in their importance and quantity. The IVDR brings immense changes with it and affects IVD-regulation from their classification to the performance evaluation. This presentation is meant to provide clarification on what changes Competent Authorities need to apply in the regulatory framework and how this will affect clinical performance studies from a regulatory perspective. Upcoming application procedures, timelines and applicable legislation and guidance will be addressed. IVDs will experience a bigger change than other medical devices and therefore an elementary introduction to the clinical performance study procedures and potential interfaces to medicinal product studies will be addressed.
