Event description

Description

Risk management is a mandatory and necessary process during the entire device life. Not only will it help to design and maintain devices efficiently, but it also ensures that the device will be as safe as possible and prevents harms to patients, users, and the environment.

Like any process that tries to produce repeatable and consistent results, the risk management process must be clearly understood, including the strengths but also the limitations.

By attending this seminar you will learn the main elements of ISO 14971, ISO 13485, IEC62304, IEC62366-1/-2, risk management life cycle steps and benefits, and FDA software reviewers' guidance.


Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this course participants should:

  • Understand the risk management process, the activities, and deliverables as well as the organization framework necessary
  • Be able to Interpret and discuss the requirements of ISO 14971
  • Develop a risk analysis framework document
  • Be able to conduct risk analysis team meetings
  • Recognize how and where to use the various techniques during the design life cycle.
  • Understand how to apply ISO 14971 into development process
  • Know how to document your Risk Management
  • Explain how your Risk Management system fits into quality system and business practices.
  • Perform risk assessments effectively
Seminar Fee Includes:
Lunch
AM-PM Tea/Coffee
Seminar Material
USB with seminar presentation
Hard copy of presentation
Attendance Certificate
$100 Gift Cert for next seminar

Who Will Benefit:

This course is relevant to managers, supervisors, QA / RA, and design/system engineers.
