Why is ISO 14971 of great importance?
The development of medical devices, hardware and software is strongly linked to risk analysis and mitigation. Risks in this context refer to harm – both to patients and users – but also to damage to property or the environment.
The ISO 14971:2019 standard specifies the process for risk management for manufacturers. The risk management process is a complex issue that requires a systematic and detailed approach from the very start and has an impact on the entire product life cycle.
ISO 14971 relation to other standards
The ISO 14971 standard is strongly linked to other standards in the field of medical technology, such as IEC 60601 (safety requirements for medical electrical equipment and in medical systems) or IEC 62304 (medical device software – software life cycle processes).
In practice, ISO TIR 24971:2020 is used as a supporting document for risk evaluation according to ISO 14971.
