Law and Practice in the United Kingdom



With one small exception, there is no UK law (statutory or otherwise) relating directly to IVDMDs. Therefore, IVDMDs, as a specific category of products, are regulated by non-governmental administrative codes of practice and commonly adhered to standards. The exceptional area of law relating directly to IVDMDs is a Statutory Instrument (secondary legislation) regulating the sale and supply of HIV testing kits to the public. This is discussed in section 2 of this report.
