The ISO 5840 standard has been recently revised to address the new knowledge and techniques in heart valve substitute technology. It is applicable to newly developed and modified heart valve substitutes intended for implantation, including respective accessory devices, with emphasis on providing specific guidance for in vitro testing, preclinical in vivo and clinical evaluations, reporting of all in vitro, preclinical in vivo, and clinical evaluations, as well as labelling and packaging of the device to be implanted. The standard consists of three parts, whereby ISO 5840-1 provides general requirements, i.e., for all types of heart valves, ISO 5840-2 provides specific requirements for surgical heart valve substitutes and ISO 5840-3 for transcatheter heart valve substitutes.

With this virtual event, a group of key subject matter experts will provide an opportunity for the EU Stakeholders such as Notified Bodies, Competent Authorities, EU Commission Members, and other regulators to understand the reason for the changes implemented in this standard series and their correct application when showing compliance to EU Legislations. Medical device experts will also have the ability to attend and raise their questions to key experts in this field enabling them to apply the standard in a harmonized and compliant way.
