Qarad 2nd EU IVD-Regulation Conference

May 5, 2017 was a day to remember: The official publication of the new European Regulations for In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices!

e-IFU live demo

Next to major changes on regulation, also the requirements regarding Instructions for Use (IFUs) has changed.
As off now, you must set up a system to make the IFU’s available on your website.
Why not turn this obligation into an opportunity and leave out the paper IFU’s at the same time, saving on paper and logistics cost?
At Qarad we are convinced that our e-IFU Service offers the perfect solution!

If you are interested, our e-IFU team will also be present at our conference. They will be pleased to present our e-IFU Services throughout our conference days.

If you want to schedule a live demo, please contact us.




The conference will be held at the Courtyard by Marriott Brussels.
