One week left to register for Medical Device Risk Management: Prepare for the Winds of Change on Jan. 22

Risk management is just plain hard, complicated, conflicted, confusing. And it is getting even more complicated

The international standard is under revision. While the changes in the process are not intended as "major", the new standard adds new definitions, changes the clause numbering, introduces new requirements, changes many of the annexes, and moves them to a new document.

In a sister storm, the EU is in transition to new regulations. There are new concepts, new risk reduction requirements, and new applications. Two areas of impact are side-effects (residual risk) and benefit-risk analysis as a life-cycle requirement.

Risk management procedures will require a major overhaul.

FDAnews and Ombu Enterprises are here to help devicemakers prepare for the winds of change, with a two-day workshop designed to untangle every mystery of risk management and a path to full compliance. During the workshop attendees will:

  •     Learn the fundamental concepts of risk management
  •     Understand the regulatory structure including the US, Canada, the EU current state, and the EU future state
  •     Review recent FDA Warning Letters and understand how to avoid problems
  •     Learn the process flow in the new standard, ISO 14971:xxxx
  •     Understand the details of the EU variant, EN ISO 14971:xxxx including the five Z annexes
  •     Understand the risk management changes arising from the EU-MDR and EU-IVDR
  •     Review the potential relationship between the ISO 14971:xxxx Risk Management System (RMS) and an ISO 13485:2016 Quality Management System (QMS)
  •     Review the risk management audit tasks from the MDSAP Audit Model
  •     Understand the role of risk management in post-market surveillance

The risk management guide is Dan O'Leary, a favorite presenter at dozens of FDAnews-sponsored workshops. Dan provides the understanding and practical tools to join the disparate pieces into a coherent whole and create a solid foundation for the coming changes. Dan boasts more than 30 years' experience in quality, operations and program management in regulated industries including aviation, defense, medical devices and clinical labs.
