The added value of Qarad’s multilingual freephone service to their eIFU solution

Government regulations for MD and IVD products allow manufacturers to provide IFUs digitally in the form of portable electronic storage media (e.g. CD or USB) or via the company’s website. Although these digital IFUs are allowed, the manufacturers are still obliged to provide an alternative means so clients can obtain paper copies on request. Qarad’s free telephone service guarantees quick and efficient handling of these requests without any burden to the manufacturer.

The Impact of Implementing an eIFU Solution on Your Quality Management System

In Europe, manufacturers of certain categories of medical devices (MD), such as implantable MD, and of in vitro diagnostic (IVD) devices for professional laboratory use, can replace the paper instructions for use (IFU) with an electronic version (eIFU). For MD the conditions and requirements have been published in Regulation 207/2012. For IVD, a guidance document was published as MEDDEV 2.14/3 (2017).
