The systematic analysis, controlling, and monitoring of risks for Medical Devices and Combination Products is required by several applicable regulations (e.g., the Medical Device Regulation or the 21 CFR Part 820). And it is essential to ensure that the product is and remains safe and effective. End of 2019, the third edition of ISO 14971 has been published, which is the standard for Risk Management of Medical Devices and is usually also applied to Combination Products. Even though the new edition is an evolution, not a revolution, it is recommended to recap the requirements and how they can be implemented in daily practice. Soon, the ISO 14971 will be accompanied by an update of the ISO TR 24971. This Technical Report provides additional guidance on how to implement a Risk Management according to ISO 14971.

This Webinar helps to get an understanding of ISO 14971 and the introduced changes, including the respective required actions, as applicable to manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceutical companies dealing with single-integral products, respectively, with other types of combination products.
