This Webinar provides an introduction to risk/benefit analysis concepts for medical devices and IVDs


The medical device/equipment field is one of the most heavily regulated industries, for obvious reasons.  Medical equipment are an important tool in efforts to improve patient care and treatment outcomes. However, today’s advanced medical devices usually consist of unique combinations of mechanical, electrical and electronic components and technologies that are frequently controlled by software or programmable controllers. As a result, international regulations and standards applicable to medical devices are being continuously revised and updated to reflect potential safety issues that can result from increasingly complex device designs.
While all medical device and in vitro diagnostic (IVD) manufacturers that claim conformity to ISO 14971:2007 should be familiar with the risk management documentation requirements established in this standard, small and medium-sized manufacturers frequently encounter challenges in preparing their risk management files, especially those wishing to market CE marked devices in accordance with the requirements of EN ISO 14971:2012.
This Webinar provides an introduction to risk/benefit analysis concepts for medical devices and IVDs, including a general overview of the differences between these two versions of ISO 14971 and the European Directives in relation to risk/benefit analysis, and descriptions and summaries of
the tools and resources available for use in these types of analyses.
