Biocompatibility and Toxicological Risk Assessment of Medical Devices – The Notified Body Perspective Training

Overview and Assessment

LIVE VIRTUAL TRAINING SCHEDULE

  • 21st August 2020: Training program on Biocompatibility and Toxicological Risk Assessment of Medical Devices – The Notified Body Perspective Training
    1 Day

ABOUT THE COURSE

Bio-compatibility is the biological evaluation of Medical Devices in compliance with the standard ISO 10993-1: 2018. The standard puts forth the requirements pertaining to biological evaluation of medical devices, general principles governing biological evaluation, categorization of medical devices, evaluation, additional data, risk assessment and interpretation and the biological tests followed by gap analysis for the medical devices based on categorization.

The Bio-compatibility assessment in perspective of Notified Body will be discussed in this training program which is a vital information for manufacturers during evaluation of technical Files and Design Dossiers by Notified bodies. The basics and importance of Toxicological risk assessment in compliance with ISO 10993-17: 2002 will also be discussed during the session which is an essential information required by the Notified Body. This standard explains the method for determination of allowable limits for substances leaching out of Medical Devices and helps in estimating allowable limits through a systematic approach towards toxicological risk evaluation of hazardous substances present in Medical Devices.

Duration: 1 - day course

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN FROM THE COURSE?

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

Gain an insight of ISO 10993-1: 2018, (Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices – Evaluation and testing within a risk management process and Medical devices - Quality management systems) and ISO 10993-17: 2002 (Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices – Establishment of allowable limits for leachable substance).
