The course also includes the impact of Brexit, post-market surveillance, risk management and supply chain requirements.


Risk Management of Medical Devices 

In the medical device industry, risk management is a vital aspect of the lifecycle of your product.  Risk management goes beyond product development and manufacturing.  It’s a systematic process centred around product hazards when using the medical device … from concept and design through to decommissioning and disposal.  An effective risk management process is an integral part of medical device design and manufacture.

Our risk management training course includes:

  • Introduction to medical device risk management
  • The EU MDD and EU MDR
  • Risk analysis, risk evaluation and risk assessment
  • Risk control and residual risk
