Compliance with IEC 62304, Title 21 CFR Part 11 (FDA), ISO 14971, IEC 60601 and more
codeBeamer ALM provides an efficient way to support and prove the use of mature medical device development processes, and to achieve compliance with standards and regulations.
Its TÜV “Trusted Tool” certification proves that codeBeamer adequately supports the implementation of mature and compliant lifecycle processes in the development of healthcare products.
Software quality, safety and reliability are crucial when it comes to medical systems development. Relevant quality regulations stipulated by IEC 62304, IEC 60601, ISO 14971 and other ISO/IEC/FDA standards demand:
- complete traceability of requirements all the way through to product release
- the enforcement of mature and transparent methods and processes
- adequate testing and risk management measures
- comprehensive documentation of lifecycle processes for compliance audits.
Challenges of Compliance in Medical Device Development
Compliance with relevant medical industry standards proves the safety and reliability of healthcare technology products, and may be a prerequisite to entering the market. One of the most important standards is IEC 62304 (Medical Device Software – Life Cycle Processes) which governs and describes software engineering for medical devices.
Companies and engineers operating in the medical technology sector have to understand and adhere to several other standards. These include ISO 13485 (quality management) and ISO 14971 (risk management) on one hand, IEC 62304, ISO 60601/61010 (safety and performance) and IEC 62366 (usability engineering) on the other.
Some of these regulations are not specific to software alone. ISO 13485 (Quality Management System), for example, relates to the design and also the manufacturing of medical products in general. Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or European Medical Device Directive may add further requirements.
