Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Risk Management Webinar/training will discuss how to use the 5 different tools which should be used in risk management process as per ISO 14971. It also emphasize on the documentation of results of the usage of tools.

Why Should You Attend:

An effective Risk Management process requires the use of more than one tool to identify hazards and estimate risks. The use of a single tool does not produce a complete risk analysis nor does it meet the requirements of the risk management standard and FDA regulations. The standard requires identification of hazards in the device normal and fault condition. Most tools identify fault condition hazards, but omit the normal condition hazard. ISO 14971 identifies five different tools, but many companies only use one. In addition, new requirements for product use were identified by FDA in guidance on human factors and risk management in 1999, and further explored in standards on usability and human factors. The documents provide additional tools for identification of normal and fault condition hazards.

This presentation will explore effective use of the various tools for identifying hazards, hazardous situations, and estimating risk as part of the risk management process. We will identify correct use of the tools and how the results of their use should be documented in such a way that it meets the requirements of a Risk Management File in ISO 14971. We will identify strengths and weaknesses of the various tools, as well as the proper use of each tool.

  • Regulatory and risk standards requirements and guidance.
