This course covers regulatory requirements for electrical, electronic and software devices including current guidance, interpretation, and application of regulations. The practical considerations of design, development, and placement on market for these type of active devices will be discussed. In particular, the regulation and approval of software devices is particularly challenging with limited guidance available with continual advancement of technology.
Challenges and issues concerning active devices and software devices will be explored to discuss and review solutions that are being applied by regulatory professionals. The linkage between the electrical and electronic devices and software devices will also be described, with further presentations on how other processes like risk management, usability, and product life cycle management are linking everything together. Review of key requirements will be made including comparing and contrasting electrical, electronic, and software devices between US, European Union, and other countries.
