Australia – Phase out of ISO 13485 certificates for IVD medical devices

The transition period for the TGA to accept ISO 13485 certificates as manufacturer evidence for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical devices ends on 26 May 2023.

This means we can no longer accept ISO 13485 certificates to support IVD inclusion applications.

Approved IVD medical devices supported by ISO 13485 certificates remain valid until the certificate expires. Sponsors will then need another form of acceptable manufacturer evidence to support their approved device.

We will publish guidance on the transition to new manufacturer evidence for IVD medical devices soon…
