Medical Device Risk Management

Trust Europlaz to ensure all risks are identified, managed and mitigated.

Risk Management Plans For Your Medical Device

All medical devices need to minimise the risk of harm to the patient, user or intermediate handler and the risks of using a medical device need to be outweighed by the benefits it will bring. This step is crucial to the development of all medical products as it ensures patients can trust the process; of testing and treatment with confidence.

At Europlaz, we cover all aspects of the development of a medical device from concept to the manufacture and rollout  of the product.

To support your project, Europlaz generates risk management plans for all medical device projects, to ensure that all risks within a project are identified, managed and suitably mitigated.

Failure Mode and Effect Techniques Analysis (FMEA)

Specific processes are analysed using Failure Mode and Effect techniques Analysis (FMEA) which systematically reviews the process and provides a feedback loop which is used to identify, reduce and control risks. This system, in use since the 1940s, is the backbone of our medical device risk management service and focuses on two key areas;

Failure Modes: Studies into the ways in which something might fail. This includes all errors and defects in the production process.

 Effects Analysis: This phase is a continuation of Failure Modes whereby specialist teams study the potential consequences of failures.

This information is then categorised by its severity, frequency and detection methods to ensure the continued improvement of production and use.

FMEA Medical device risk management is best undertaken with a full understanding of the device and the processes used to manufacture the device.

To achieve this Europlaz converse with your medical device risk management team to provide specialist technical knowledge on the activities we undertake and to gain your insight into your product when carrying out our internal risk management for your product. This provides a fresh perspective and can be the difference in critical medical situations.
