WEBINAR: Human Factors Engineering : New and Renewed Regulatory Expectations

  • Webinar

Today, regulators worldwide expect that manufacturers will apply human factors engineering (HFE, which is also called usability engineering) methods and design principles in the normal course of developing a safe and effective medical device. In the medical device industry, documentation demonstrating mitigation of use-risks is required for regulatory approval and the ability to place products on the market.
