Information for beta users

The electronic version of the Model List of Essential In Vitro Diagnostics (known as eEDL) was launched in a Beta Phase on 29 of January 2021. The beta eEDL version is not fully tested, and it may therefore contain bugs and not fully implemented features. This version will continue to be enhanced by input from multiple stakeholders during the Beta Phase. Field testing and content refinements might change the contents to an extensive degree.


The eEDL:

  • is NOT FINAL. Historical records of EDL listings are not complete.
  • does NOT substitute for the fourth WHO model list of essential in vitro diagnostics (published as pdf document within the WHO Technical Report Series 1053: The selection and use of essential in vitro diagnostics)
  • It will be formally revised in 2024-2025 by the SAGE IVD
  • Updates and changes are possible daily.
