Teaching goals

The one-day compact seminar aims to increase your competence in the practical implementation of regulatory requirements (in particular IEC 62304) while promoting efficient software development. You are responsible for the development or quality assurance of medical device software or software as a medical device (SaMD)? Then you should attend this seminar!

  • Regulatory basics: You know the relevant guidelines, directives, laws, standards, regulations and their interaction
  • Process: You know the development activities of the IEC 62304 and how to match agile development with this standard
  • Documentation: You create lean and accurate documents that meet the requirements of IEC 62304 (e.g. software requirements, software architecture and software design)
  • SOUP: You know how to select, integrate and document third-party software in an IEC 62304 compliant manner.
  • Software risk management: You understand the interaction of risk management according to ISO 14971 and IEC 62304 and the definition of safety classes and segregation
  • Quality management: You have the starting points to streamline your quality management system and pass your audit with confidence


This seminar is a compact introduction to the topic of development, quality assurance and approval of medical software (software as a medical device or medical device software). It is especially aimed at those who want to get a quick and comprehensive overview of the following topics:
