Risk management is the linchpin of medical device law. In this workshop, you will learn to avoid risk management mistakes that can lead to problems in audits and delays in the "approval" of your medical devices.



This seminar thus provides you not only with a comprehensive knowledge, but also with the skills to create and review the risk management files for your medical devices and to coordinate the activities related to risk management.

Here you will find more information about the next dates and costs. If nothing else is noted in the table on the overview page, there are still places available.


The seminar lasts two days, with a focus on practical relevance. The lectures alternate with case studies and numerous exercises. We are happy to discuss your specific files and subject them to a "quick check" if desired.
