Why Should You Attend:
Global regulatory authorities are increasingly focused on poor software design, implementation, and verification during product submissions and onsite inspections and audits. Regulatory investigators and notified bodies are improving their level of technical competence and tightening their expectations for software process maturity. Failure to follow existing and ever-evolving design controls requirements can and has led to declined product submissions, inspection observations, and regulatory enforcement action.
This intensity is driven by the significant share of product recalls driven by software defects, increased frequency and impact of malicious cyber attacks, and the failure of companies to manage the design, testing, and changes in their software systems to ensure continued safety and efficacy.
This webinar provides a valuable overview of the regulatory landscape for medical device software and supplies tools a company can use to fashion their procedures and practices around compliance, safety, efficacy, and sound software engineering. As the regulatory environment struggles to keep pace with the technological environment applied to life science applications, the session will speak to the future and how to prepare for what is next from interested third parties.

Whether software is embedded in an electro-mechanical medical device, driving the user interface to a medical device, or a stand-alone medical device in its own right, it is subject to design controls requirements defined by a global set of regulations, standards, and guidance. This webinar will place software design controls within the wider design controls regulatory context, while providing a detailed walkthrough of the primary regulatory requirements, as they might be applied in a wide variety of waterfall or iterative lifecycle models.
Building on the basic design controls requirements of 21 CFR Part 820 and ISO 13485, specific activities and deliverables will be discussed based on international standards such as IEC 62304 and detailed guidance from organizations such as the U.S. FDA, AAMI, IMDRF, the Australian TGA, and Health Canada. Sub-topics will include regulatory expectations of cybersecurity, the myth of defect-free software, and the importance of impact analysis to software change management.
The session will also address specific applications of software design controls that may be beneficial in non-medical device environments, mobile medical applications, and AI/ML systems.
