German Notified Body TÜV SÜD has obtained designation to issue CE Mark certificates under the European In-vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Regulation (IVDR).

There are now four Notified Bodies designated to the IVDR ahead of the Regulation’s May 2022 date of application, according to the NANDO database:

  • BSI Assurance UK Ltd. (UK)
  • BSI Group The Netherlands B.V. (The Netherlands)
  • DEKRA Certification GmbH (Germany)
  • TÜV SÜD Product Service GmbH Zertifizierstellen (Germany)

Given that the percentage of IVD devices anticipated to require CE Marking from Notified Bodies will increase from less than 10% currently to more than 80% under the IVDR, TÜV SÜD’s designation should come as welcome news—so long as significantly more Notified Bodies follow suit to support manufacturers’ IVDR compliance.
