Software classification of a medical device may not be an easy task for manufacturers, as they need to deal with multiple classification schemes with different requirements.

During the development of a product, these are three main points manufacturers should consider:
  1. If the device is a medical device.
  2. If the medical device can be considered a software as a medical device (SaMD).
  3. If the software is firmware just controlling hardware or if there is a higher level of data processing.
Thanks to this webinar, regulatory affairs managers learn about:
  • General requirements of IEC 60601-1 clause 14 and the overlap with IEC 62304.
  • Software classification rules according to IEC 62304, the purpose of the classification and examples of different classes.
  • The use of segregation to reduce documentation efforts.
