ISO 14971 calls for a risk management process for medical device manufacturers and their accessories that identifies the medical device hazards, assesses risks, describes risk mitigation measures and monitors the effectiveness of these measures. The requirements of the standard apply during all phases of the product life cycle of a medical device, also after the product is already on the market.

Risk management is an essential part of development, but also during the production and post-production phase of medical devices. Benefit from the many years of experience of our experts and risk managers.
