Risk-Based Medical Device Regulations

Part of the TGA’s medical device regulations includes a comprehensive adverse event reporting program. This involves assessing the evidence of the risks compared to the benefits. For instance, how likely is the device to fail either accidently or deliberately? Given the variety of device types and purposes, all risks must be identified and managed according to the nature of the device.
