With various changes to standards and regulations, it is important to understand the criteria for compliance, this is your DIY guide to the changes in standards, specifically covering the IEC 62304 standard.

Update of changes made to regulatory standards
The effect of new regulatory developments on the medical device manufacture process
Information on regulatory changes in the pipeline

Why should you Attend: ISO 134385 – ISO 14971 – IEC 62304 – IEC 60601-1 – IEC 62366 – the alphabet soup of standards relevant to medical device software is overwhelming. Why do all these documents exist, and how do they affect the work your group is doing on your company’s software? What does a software group need to know about them, and what changes can we expect in the near future?

Areas Covered in the Session:
– Standards can be bewildering – get over it
– Quality sounds like a buzzword, but it underlies everything else in our business
– Development lifecycle gives a framework
– Risk Management is about how to MANAGE risks, not how to find and remove them
– Electrical equipment safety inevitably involves software
– Usability requires us to understand who were working to help
– Planned changes will adapt these standards to new challenges
– Good engineering is our goal- compliance follows

Who Will Benefit:
– Functional Managers – Software, Test, Hardware
– Other Development Specialists (Mechanical, Engineering, Other)
– Project Managers (Especially for Cross-Functional Teams)
– Software Developers
– Business Analysts
– Requirements Analysts
– Product Managers
