ISO 14971 Medical Device Risk Management Training

Can't travel? This class is available virtually.

The EU medical device regulations, the MDSAP audit model, and the new version of ISO 14971:2019 and ISO/TR 24971 have put a spotlight on risk management as a foundational process in your quality management system. How companies manage risk associated with their devices throughout the product life cycle is getting more scrutiny from regulators.

In this workshop-based course you will learn how to apply ISO 14971:2019 risk management from:

  • A product focus – how to apply or “do” the risk management process through a device’s full life cycle (development through end of life).
  • A process focus – how to treat risk management as a foundational process of your quality management system, and how it integrates with other key processes (design control, production and service controls, feedback, improvement, management responsibility, etc.).

This class is also available for private team training. 

Upcoming Dates and Locations

Virtual seminars run as 1/2-day sessions. In-person classes run as full-day sessions. See the virtual session daily class times.

What You Will Learn

At the conclusion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify integration of risk into the European Union (EU) Medical Device Regulation (MDR), the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP), and the US FDA quality system regulation (QSR).
  • Describe the purpose, structure, and key concepts of ISO 14971 and ISO/TR 24971, including the definitions for benefit, state of the art, and reasonably foreseeable misuse and the expanded requirements for production and post-production activities.
  • Understand the relationship of ISO 14971 to EN ISO 14971:2019, ISO 13485, IEC 60601, IEC 62366, and ISO 10993.
  • Articulate the requirements for each step of the risk management process, including risk management planning, risk analysis, risk evaluation, risk control, benefit-risk and residual risk analysis, risk management review and reporting, and production and post-production activities.
  • Through workshops, create a risk management plan, apply tools for risk assessment and risk control, conduct a benefit-risk analysis, create a risk management report, and assess production and post-production information for possible action.
  • Understand production and post-production risk management requirements, including CAPA activities and postmarket surveillance processes.
  • Describe how to use the process and risk-based approach of ISO 13485 to ensure the continued suitability, adequacy, and effectiveness of your risk management process
