Watch RQM+ Live! on demand


On Thursday, 13 October, RQM+ subject matter experts hosted episode #61 of our Live! show. Fill out the form to get access to the on-demand recording now.

Each year RQM+ supports hundreds of FDA 510(k)'s and EU technical documentation files for either medical devices containing software or stand-alone software devices. In this show our regulatory experts will discuss both FDA and EU deficiencies and additional information requests associated with software (real case studies), as well as best practices and solutions to avoid these pain points in your submissions.

Devices and challenges discussed will include: 

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) machine learning and acceptability of change control plans 
  • Defining proprietary algorithms and controlling changes in those algorithms 
  • Cybersecurity implementation and alignment with ISO 14971 (Risk management) 
  • Lack of information on connected devices 
  • Aligning terminology and documentation across various requirements and processes (AGILE, ISO 62304, QSR, MDR, IVDR) 
  • Off-the-shelf software and expectations for verification and validation testing.
