An introduction to medical device software regulations and requirements to include the latest EU and FDA guidance and risk management.
Customised in-house training course
The content, presenters and format of this course are customised to your requirements.
This intensive four-day course provides a comprehensive appraisal of the regulations and requirements that apply to medical device software worldwide. The programme will be highly interactive, using real-life examples and state-of-the-art practices identified by Notified Bodies in Europe. There will be in-depth coverage on how to prepare compliant technical file documentation for medical device software products and a review of software specification, risk management, architectures, usability and resulting design documentation. Presentations will also offer practical tips on how to streamline the development process and provide an understanding of the regulatory requirements and how Notified Bodies review technical files.
There will be sessions on the practical implication of risk management and usability and an analysis of the differences between FDA guidance and MDR guidance on medical device software. Software recalls, the use of apps in medical devices, the implications of the new draft usability standard, and advice on how to validate your system design will also be addressed.
