Global IVD Classification


Product classification is an important part of ensuring that the IVD industry runs effectively, particularly in multiple markets. A classification scheme assigns a specific code to each product type or class, allowing the rapid identification of the product without any need for local language translation. In fact, the specific name of the product is not required.

MedTech Europe has created a specific classification scheme for IVDs, the Global IVD (GIVD) classification (previously known as EDMA classification). It is a numerical coding system, which has been developed for the purpose to support the collection and analysis of market statistics.
