Risk Management

As our industry becomes increasingly complex, understanding how to navigate risk has become more critical than ever. That's why our best-in-class experts have created a 16-hour course to help you understand the requirements of ISO 14971, and its importance for medical device manufacturers.

This course explores the ISO 14971 standard clause by clause to ensure you thoroughly comprehend the requirements. You'll also gain clarity of how ISO 14971 aligns with the new MDR and IVDR.

This training is fully interactive and offers you the chance to take part in group activities, participate in polls and download course materials.
