Hello every body!
I was wondering if it exists a standard terminology for IVD IFU (and other IVD related documents).

In exemple:
In the field of Pharmacology, EMEA produced some "standard templates" in different European languages for Summary of Product Characteristics (
Is there any equivalent for IVD? and/or for other medical devices?

Thank you for your attention!
