Safely Manage Change

Updated medical device files are required to maintain legal market access in most regulatory regions, including the EU and the US. ISO 13485 and 14971 set requirements for risk management and the control of design and development changes. A typical change requiring updated documentation would be the introduction of new raw materials or processing chemicals or when switching to a new raw materials supplier. Another example is changes in the manufacturing processes, including those at contract manufacturers. Additionally, change control requires evaluating what impact product specification or manufacturing process changes will have on a product’s biological safety and performance.

SAXOCON provides you with everything you need to evaluate the impact of design and manufacturing changes on compliance with regulatory safety requirements, including:
