MPD software validation for medical devices

10 March 2016 4 Greenfield Crescent, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 3BE

Medilink West Midlands, in conjunction with Acclaim Biomedical Consulting, is offering a one day workshop exploring the requirements needed for software development and manufacturing within Medical Devices. With over 20 years’ experience in medical devices, Acclaim Biomedical Consulting is best placed to support and advise on the regulatory processes for existing and new software products and processes.

This course will focus on the regulatory requirements that surround the software that is used and needed in Medical Devices and manufacturing environments. It will touch on the associated standards and how to ensure compliance, with a particular focus on risk management and software lifecycles. We will help you to decide if your software is a medical device as defined by the European regulations and, if so, how to classify it to ensure you comply with the Medical Device Directive. You will also explore how ISO 62366, ISO 62304 and ISO 60601 impacts on software processes and usage and review what regulators will be looking for.
