ISO 14971 is an ISO standard for the application of risk management to medical devices. ISO 14971:2019 was released mid-December, and the EN version was released on December 18, 2019 to replace the ISO 14971:2007 and EN ISO 14971:2012 respectively.


Main highlighted of the updates are as follows:

  • The key concepts and core approach to risk management was maintained
  • Clarification was added around the following:
  • Production and post-production information
  • Clinical benefits and risk-benefit analysis
  • Update the guidance in the annexes
  • Revise ISO/TR 24971- The Technical Report that provides guidance on the application of ISO 14971


  • Informative Annexes would primarily reside in ISO TR 24971 because it is easier to update a Technical Report than it is a standard. A new Clause was added: Clause 2 on Normative References. As a result, all Clauses past Clause 1 are incremented by 1.
  • While the Technical Report compliments the standard, it is important to note that the information in ISO TR 24971:2019 serves only as a guidance, and not requirements. As well, the first 3 annexes in ISO 14971:2019 act as guidance, and not requirements. The ISO/TR 24971:20XX has not been released yet.



This training aims to provide participants with a clear understanding and insight into the new EN ISO 14971:2019 requirements. The training takes a look at what the major changes in 2019 updates/revision and also covers some of the commonly used risk management tools such as FMEA, FTA etc.
