WHO is currently updating the WHO Global Model Regulatory Framework for medical devices including IVDS https://apps.who.int/iris/handle/10665/255177 to capture advances
in the medical devices innovations. The objectives of this exercise are to:
1. Revise and update the GMRF as deemed appropriate
2. Keep the focus on the National Regulatory Authorities including the role of the National Reference Laboratories
3. Expand the contents on specific topics
4. Developing guidance on specific topics
5. Proposal for implementation workshops
WHO has thus established two groups to revise and update the GMRF: a WHO Steering group consisting of WHO/HQ staff members and a Working Group (WG) GMRF consisting of regulatory experts to oversee the revision and update of the GMRF. The revision and update of the GMRF will be conducted between July 2021 and January 2022 through a number of online meetings and concluded through a final meeting in January 2022. There usually two sessions in one specified day in a week which happen at two weeks intervals.
