This document aims to provide manufacturers of WHO prequalified in vitro diagnostic medical devices (IVDs) with information on when they must report to WHO about:
- changes to the prequalified product or its manufacture;
- changes to the Quality Management System (QMS) that the product was designed and manufactured under; and/or
- other reportable administrative changes.
Manufacturers of WHO prequalified IVDs should read and understand this document so that they are aware of their duties and responsibilities as a supplier of a prequalified IVD as to when to report to WHO applicable changes to the IVD, its manufacture and other related activities.
This document describes when and how a manufacturer will report to WHO changes to a prequalified IVD and its manufacture, the QMS under which it is manufactured and certain administrative changes associated with the IVD. To assist the understanding of when to report a change to WHO, this document provides guidance and a non-exhaustive list of generic examples.
