Medical device manufacturing is a risky business. When things go wrong with a medical device, there is a lot at stake. At the very least, it can be expensive and disruptive for your company. At the worst, it can cause patient injury or even death.

So how do you evaluate and manage risk? ISO 14971 standardizes risk management procedures and protocols for medical device manufacturers. In this white paper, we’ll take a deep dive into risk/benefit analysis, ISO 14971 requirements, and much more, including:

  • How does ISO 14971 define risk/benefit analysis?
  • What are the differences between ISO 14971:2007 and EN ISO 14971:2012?
  • What is a data/literature review?
  • What are some examples of quantitative risk/benefit methodologies?

Learn all this and much more in this 9-page white paper.
