ISO 14971 Risk Management for Medical Device Courses

ISO 14971 covers risk management for medical devices

There are 2 Courses available for the effective Risk Management of Medical Devices

One of the primary reasons for the revision and extension of the ISO 14971 Standard in 2019 was to extend the application of risk management tools beyond the blanket application of FMEAs alone to the protection of patient and end-user safety.  Two examples of where other tools are far more appropriate would be ...

  1. the use of PHA - Preliminary Hazard Analysis in the planning stage of new product design and development and
  2. the use of HACCP - Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point in ensuring and recording the control of critical stages in the manufacture of a medical device.

We have prepared two Courses to help you in adequately and effectively auditing and implementing the ISO 14971:2019 Standard and a quick overview of the Course Content is given below.  Both Courses come with extensive examples, charts and process diagrams and, with the Advanced Course, a comprehensive set of Templates.  As with all deGRANDSON Courses, these ones are available on-demand, self-paced and delivered online (including the examinations).
