Global InVitro Diagnostic Classification

Abstract: 

"An effective product classification system is critical to the functioning of any industry in the knowledge-based markets of today. A classification scheme assigns a code to each product type or class, allowing quick identification of the product in a language-independent fashion (the specific name of the product is actually not mentioned).
EDMA has been following the development of the European IVD market for many years. In order to allow for the easy compilation and consolidation of market data, EDMA has created a specific product classification scheme for IVDs. This European Diagnostic Market Statistics (EDMS) programme, based on the independent audit of invoiced sales, is the authoritative source of IVD market statistics in Europe. Its objective information serves as a valuable basis for decision-making in the IVD industry."
