Objectives of the Presentation
Why Should you Attend
- The substance of the seven content deviations
- An explanation of how content deviation requirement differs from the international standard
- The expected content of an ISO 14971:2007 risk management file
- Practical steps to update the risk management file to EN ISO 14971:2012
- The Team-NB recommendation for Notified Bodies to evaluate a risk management file
Medical device manufacturers implement risk management following ISO 14971:2007. In August 2012, the European Union (EU) published a regional variation, EN ISO 14971:2012, that informs of situations where the product directives are more restrictive than the risk management standard.
While the changes has been around for some time, many companies still struggle with the changes, don’t fully understand them, and may get a nonconformance from a Notified Body.
Seven content deviations apply to the Medical Device Directive (MDD). In each case, the wording in the MDD is more restrictive than the requirements of ISO 14971:2007, so the MDD governs. Manufacturers who put the CE Mark on a medical device must bring the risk management file into compliance with the harmonized standard.
