Medical devices. Application of risk management to medical devices (British Standard)

This document specifies terminology, principles and a process for risk management of medical devices, including software as a medical device and in vitro diagnostic medical devices. The process described in this document intends to assist manufacturers of medical devices to identify the hazards associated with the medical device, to estimate and evaluate the associated risks, to control these risks, and to monitor the effectiveness of the controls.  The requirements of this document are applicable to all phases of the life cycle of a medical device. The process described in this document applies to risks associated with a medical device, such as risks related to biocompatibility, data and systems security, electricity, moving parts, radiation, and usability.  The process described in this document can also be applied to products that are not necessarily medical devices in some jurisdictions and can also be used by others involved in the medical device life cycle.  This document does not apply to:  — decisions on the use of a medical device in the context of any particular clinical procedure; or  — business risk management.  This document requires manufacturers to establish objective criteria for risk acceptability but does not specify acceptable risk levels.  Risk management can be an integral part of a quality management system. However, this document does not require the manufacturer to have a quality management system in place.  NOTE Guidance on the application of this document can be found in ISO/TR 24971.

Information supplied by the manufacturer of medical devices (British Standard)

This European Standard specifies requirements for information to be supplied by a manufacturer for medical devices regulated by Council Directive 90/385/EEC relating to active implantable medical devices and Council Directive 93/42/EEC concerning medical devices. It does not specify the language to be used for such information, nor does it specify the means by which the information is to be supplied. It is also intended to complement the specific requirements of the cited EU Directives on medical devices by providing guidance on means by which certain requirements can be met. If a manufacturer follows these means, they will provide a presumption of conformity with the relevant Essential Requirements regarding information to be supplied. This standard does not cover requirements for provision of information for in vitro diagnostic medical devices, which are covered by other labelling standards (see Bibliography). NOTE When national transpositions of the Directives specify the means by which information shall be supplied, this standard does not provide derogation from these requirements for that country.
