Course Details


Companion diagnostics (also known as CDx) is a particular category of IVD devices, used to aid in the assessment of patients for whom a specific drug therapy is being considered. The IVDR has increased requirements for CDx.  Most CDx devices are now in risk Class C and require Notified Body oversight for placement on the market.

In addition, a Notified Body is required to consult the competent authority designated by the member states in accordance with Directive 2001/83/EC or the European Medicines Agency (EMA) as applicable, which results in a longer approval process.
