Ex 123 - Risk Analysis for Medical Devices  : 1 day


To provide understanding of the risk analysis standard for medical devices ISO 14971 and how to use it.

This one-day course examines all steps of the risk management process.  Risk assessment involves risk analysis and risk evaluation, and then comes risk control and finally post-production information gathering.  Participants will review the application of this risk management process in the standard ISO 14971 to medical devices.

Using case studies, hypothetical devices or actual company devices, participants will apply the process to conduct risk analysis to identify hazards, their severity and the probability they might occur.  Following the risk analysis, participants will apply risk evaluation and risk control principles to their devices including regulatory requirements, technical costs, accident costs, liability costs and insurance costs which affect decision making on the acceptability of risks bringing a device to market.
