Under the IVDR (2017/746) manufacturers will need to state on their labels when the device is intended for self-testing or for near-patient testing, and for certain rapid tests when they are not intended for self-testing nor for near-patient testing.

MedTech Europe (MTE) wants to make this more effective by providing industry with agreed symbols for these device aspects. To that end, MTE has announced the launch of a new webpage which will include:

  • The symbols and their use explained, including examples;
  • Symbol translations into all European languages; and
  • The artwork-ready symbol files, ready for download.
