Back in April, 2020, the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion has com­mit­ted itself to set up a data­base of CE marked COVID-19 IVD tests.

The Com­mis­sion has now pub­lished a link under which the data­base may be accessed – view here.

The over­all aim of the project is to “assist Mem­ber States with a cen­tralised overview of avail­able infor­ma­tion on test per­for­mance and act as a sin­gle point of con­tact for man­age­ment of this infor­ma­tion. Tak­ing stock of the state of the art on a reg­u­lar basis will sup­port Mem­ber States’ informed deci­sions on nation­al test­ing strate­gies, as well as sup­port the con­tin­u­ous devel­op­ment of devices by man­u­fac­tur­ers.” 

Man­u­fac­tur­ers of prod­ucts that fall into this field are high­ly advised to mon­i­tor the devel­op­ment of the data­base and its con­tents to make sure their own prod­ucts are in line with the Commission’s expec­ta­tions and the state of the art.
