IEC has released a new medical device usability standard, IEC 62366-1:2015 --  Part 1: “Application of the new Usability Engineering Standard to Medical Devices”, and its companion “IEC/TR 62366-2:2016 -- Part 2: Guidance on the application of usability engineering to medical devices” .  These addresses an on-going concern by regulatory agencies in both the US and EU, human factors engineering, or it’s synonym, usability engineering.  Usability can be defined as “the ability for a human to interact easily and relatively error-free with a system, product or procedure.” The FDA views human factors engineering as mandated to reduce user error and make medical products use as close to intuitive as possible, especially since 2000. In one of their guidance documents on the subject, it states: “CDRH considers human factors testing a valuable component of product development for medical devices.”   This webinar will address the requirements of the IEC standard and its 9 stages of documentation, as well as the non-regulatory tutorial / guidance of its companion,  “IEC/TR 62366-2.
