Coming soon.. Please contact customer care for new schedule
FDA views risk management as an essential process both during inspections and in the review of pre-market submissions. Effective risk management has become critical to medical device manufacturers and this interactive two day seminar is aimed at providing medical device professionals with the tools necessary for effective risk management implementation in device manufacturing and marketing.
It will address both the fundamentals of risk management as well as current best practices for ISO 14971 compliance. The course will look in detail at risk management requirements in the US, the EU, and other parts of the world. Taught using an interactive workshop format, attendees will practice all the risk management activities required by ISO 14971. Exercises are aimed at demonstrating efficient and effective use of risk management, including best practices in applying the ISO standard. Emphasis is placed on practical solutions to practical problems. Seminar instructor Harvey Rudolph, Ph.D., one of the authors of ISO 14971 and a 25 year veteran of FDA, will also provide insight on the guidance contained in new ISO TR 24971 (Guidance on the application of ISO 14971) and how to integrate risk management into your quality management system.

The 3rd edition of IEC 60601 adds further fuel to the fire with the requirement that electro-medical device manufacturers have a risk management process in place conforming to ISO 14971. Manufacturers that market devices in the European Union have found additional requirements for their risk management activities as detailed in EN/ISO 14971:2012.

The Brandenburg Gate is a former city gate, rebuilt in the late 18th century as a neoclassical triumphal arch, and now one of the most well-known landmarks of Germany. The gate is the monumental entry to Unter den Linden, the renowned boulevard of linden trees, which formerly led directly to the city palace of the Prussian monarchs. It was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace and built by Carl Gotthard Langhans from 1788 to 1791. Throughout its existence, the Brandenburg Gate was often a site for major historical events and is today considered a symbol of the tumultuous history of Europe and Germany, but also of European unity and peace.
The Berlin Wall was a barrier constructed by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany) starting 13 August 1961, that completely cut off (by land) West Berlin from surrounding East Germany and from East Berlin. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, which circumscribed a wide area (later known as the "death strip") that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The wall served to prevent the massive emigration and defection that marked East Germany and the communist Eastern Bloc during the post-World War II period. The physical wall was primarily destroyed in 1990. The fall of the Berlin Wall paved the way for German reunification, which was formally concluded on 3 October 1990.
The Reichstag building is a historical edifice in Berlin, Germany, constructed to house the Imperial Diet of the German Empire. It was opened in 1894 and housed the Diet until 1933, when it was severely damaged in a fire. After World War II, the building fell into disuse. The ruined building was made safe against the elements and partially refurbished in the 1960s, but no attempt at full restoration was made until after German reunification on 3 October 1990, when it underwent a reconstruction led by architect Norman Foster. After its completion in 1999, it once again became the meeting place of the German parliament: the modern Bundestag.
Museum Island is the name of the northern half of an island on the Spree River in the central Mitte district of Berlin, Germany, the site of the old city of Cölln. It derives its name from its five internationally significant museums, all part of the Berlin State Museums: the Altes Museum, the Neues Museum, the Alte Nationalgalerie, the Bode Museum, and the Pergamon Museum. In 1999, the museum complex was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Topography of Terror
The Topography of Terror is an outdoor and indoor history museum in Berlin. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era. The first exhibitions of the site took place in 1987 as part of Berlin's 750th anniversary. The cellar of the Gestapo headquarters, where many political prisoners were tortured and executed, were found and excavated. The site was then turned into a memorial and museum, detailing the history of repression under the Nazis. The new exhibition and documentation building and the redesigned historic grounds were opened to the public on May 7, 2010.
German Museum of Technology
Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin (German Museum of Technology) in Berlin, Germany is a museum of science and technology, and exhibits a large collection of historical technical artifacts. The museum's main emphasis originally was on rail transport, but today it also features exhibits of various sorts of industrial technology. Recently, it has opened both maritime and aviation exhibition halls. The museum also contains a science center called Spectrum. The museum’s collection includes an extensive railway collection opened in 1987/88 in the original 19th century roundhouses of the Anhalter Bahnhof locomotive depot. A large aviation section beside the C-47 houses numerous aircrafts from the single Jeannin Stahltaube to a LufthansaJunkers Ju 52 and an Arado Ar 79. On May 15, 2002, a special exhibition opened which featured the inventions of computer pioneer Konrad Zuse, including a replica of the Z1.
Berlin Victory Column
The Victory Column is a monument designed by Heinrich Strack after 1864 to commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War. By its inauguration on 2nd September 1873, Prussia had also defeated Austria in the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and France in the Franco-Prussian War (1870–71), giving the statue a new purpose. Different from the original plans, these later victories in the so-called unification wars inspired the addition of the bronze sculpture of Victoria, 8.3 metres high and weighing 35 tonnes, designed by Friedrich Drake. Berliners have given the statue the nickname Goldelse. The Victory Column is a major tourist attraction in the city of Berlin and opens daily: 9:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. (April – October), and 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. (November – March).
