Course Description

Be Ready for the Approval of your additive manufacturing (AM) product

Every regulated industry requires a certain degree of risk assessment and risk minimization. Risk management refers to the systematic management of the analysis, evaluation and control of risks.

Medical technology can be cited here as an example. The quality management standard ISO 13485, which is relevant for the medical sector, explicitly requires risk management and all associated documentation for the entire product realization process. The requirements in ISO 14971 for this purpose must in turn be transferred to additive manufacturing technology.

The training will give you the required know-how and input to conduct risk assessment and management for additive manufacturing products. This course focuses on the medical industry, and the course includes an assessment of whether an acceptable risk can be achieved. 

The second part will be a workshop to discuss specific situations in conjunction with the new input, so that you will have first results and ideas that will be useful for your specific situation and can continue working on them in your company in an effective manner.

Examples and use-cases will focus on medical sector.

Completion of this course will result in a certificate of participation from TÜV SÜD Academy.
