Finding the Right Software Tools for Functional Safety Projects
The requirements on qualification of software tools employed in a functional safety development project is often of big concern to many industry stakeholder, e.g. OEM’s, system integrators, equipment manufacturers or tool vendors. Often a lot of open questions exist which are leading to long discussion during a project lifecycle. Furthermore, in certification projects, this topic is often seen as an area of risk and uncertainty. Additionally, there are more and more certified tools available but it is not always clear which tool would lead to the highest benefit.

Supplier performance is critical to your business. If your suppliers are unable to fully meet your quality requirements, it becomes increasingly difficult for your organization to meet the requirements placed upon you by your customers. If your suppliers are unable to meet your requirements for continuous improvement, the quality and reliability of your end product suffers. The result? Increased customer dissatisfaction, additional supplier management costs, and the potential loss of customers and their revenue stream.
This webinar will discuss best practices that will make your supplier auditing program more effective to help your company achieve lower costs, improved quality, and faster service from your suppliers.
Achieving Cost Savings and Quality Improvements From Your Supply Chain
An effective supplier auditing program is crucial to managing your business and ensuring the quality and reliability of your suppliers and thus your end product. This webinar will discuss the best ways for maximizing cost savings and improving quality throughout your supply chain.
Classification and Conformity Assessment Procedure under IVDR
IVDs will no longer be subject to the list-based system currently in the IVD Directive; they will be subject to the risk classes developed by the Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF). It is a fundamental change to the classification system for in-vitro diagnostic medical devices under IVDR.
The conformity assessment routes for IVDs are amended to fit the new classification logic. As a consequence, 80% of all IVDs will need to be certified by a notified body under the IVDR, as compared to 20% currently under the IVD Directive.
The conformity assessment routes, best for IVD manufacturers, will be presented during this Webinar.
Overview of the new European IVDR
Currently, around 70% of IVDs on the market are sold without the involvement of a Notified Body. The IVDR will change that while also making sweeping changes to medical device regulations, all aimed at protecting end users. Manufacturers and suppliers of these devices must start preparing for these wide-reaching changes now. Our IVDR webinar series is here to help your business plan for the transition.
