Are you up-to-date with new risk management requirements?
Risk Management is an important but difficult concept for lots of industries but is particularly important within the medical field and hence within medical devices. In such a hazard-rich industry, risk must be considered from the beginning to the very end of a product lifecycle. Implementing risk has never been more challenging, as recent regulatory changes have made it problematic to harmonize risk management processes in product lifecycles. Therefore, it has never been more important to understand how to coordinate an effective risk management strategy.
This interactive course offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the regulatory requirements for risk management of medical devices and provides an insight into a variety of tools and techniques to implement them into your own systems. Attendees will be provided with an in-depth outlook on EN ISO 14971 and its overlap with ISO 13485 and the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR), alongside gaining an informed insight into the intricacies of risk management planning. Overall, attendees will expect to be taken through the risk management process from start to finish.
