Read Frequently Asked Questions

This medical device risk management webinar will provide attendees an overview of ISO 14971requirements and practical tips for implementing an effective system for managing risk. It will also discuss differences between the world-wide international standard ISO 14971:2007 and the Europe-only version risk management standard EN ISO 14971:2012.

Why Should You Attend:

This webinar will review the ISO 14971 standard and will explore the process for risk management. The requirements of the standard will be discussed, along with the valuable information for implementation developed for the annexes. It will also discuss some of the requirements that have important implications for the medical device manufacturer as they develop their implementation of the risk management standard. A guidance from the medical device risk management technical committee, ISO TR 24971, provides much useful information on implementation of ISO 14971, including the use of product and process standards. Differences between the world-wide international standard and the Europe-only version will be briefly discussed.

The presenter is a current member of the US national committee on medical device risk management. He was Co-chair of the AAMI committee, QM/WG04, on application of risk management to medical device and participated in the development of ISO 14971 risk management standard for medical devices.

Topic Background:

The International Standards Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) developed a joint standard for medical device risk management. This standard has formed the foundation for many other medical device standards, an international pharmaceutical guidance document and even an ISO general risk management standard. The process developed for ISO 14971 is now recognized as the risk management process to be followed by these other documents. While ISO 14971 focuses on medical device product safety, the techniques have wide application. The use of ISO 14971 in product safety applications for medical devices aids in meeting regulatory requirements, assists in producing safer products, and can help reduce costs of design and product liability. Meanwhile, the release of a Europe-only version of the risk management standard, EN ISO 14971:2012 has confused the industry over the requirements for medical device risk management.
