Our risk management course focuses on the software risk management process based on ISO 14971 device as an input, IEC 62304 risk management requirements, and guidance for software found in IEC/TR 80002-1, both which are consensus standards with US FDA.

As with all SoftwareCPR® courses, our approach is to educate on the intent and purpose so that the participants are able to make informed decisions in the future. Our training covers regulatory, quality, and the details of the software development process necessary for compliance.

Our standard format course covers the topics listed below:

§ Brief Regulatory Background – US FDA, EU
§ SOUP, OTSS, and Legacy Software
§ 62304 Safety Classifications vs. FDA LOC
§ Harms – Direct & Indirect, Hazards, Hazardous Situations
§ System, Device, Product level considerations – 60601-1, 82304

§ Identifying Causes and Causal Pathways, Failure Modes

§ Probability and Severity related to software

§ Risk Control – Design, Architecture

§ Verification and testing

§ Managing Risk after release
