  3. Minor revisions to over 40% of the standard.
  4. The standard has over 160 required and over 160 suggested policy, procedure, plan, record, document, audit, or review

This checklist addresses the amendment and the base standard

“IEC 62304:2015, is often confusing and laborious. This is because directions contained in the standard can seem unclear or ambiguous. To aid in determining what is actually required by IEC 62304, the experts at SEPT have produced a checklist. This checklist was prepared by analyzing each clause in IEC 62304 for key words that signify a required policy, procedure, plan, record, document, audit, or review.

This revised standards has over 160 required artifacts and over180 suggested ones. Below is a table showing the required artifacts by type.

Procedures Plans Records Documents Audits Reviews Total

The resulting checklist then provides an easy-to-use categorized list of physical evidence against which you can audit your work products to help insure conformance with IEC 62304.

To better understand this model a user of this product should understand SEPT definition of an auditor. An auditor can be your boss, an inside auditor or an outside auditor such as the European Union, FDA or a prime contractor for your product. The checklist will give the auditor and you a common reference point in the standard (Clause number) that becomes the index point for physical evidence. If a standard calls out physical evidence more than once , such as a “training plan” it is always index to the first clause that reference the training plan This method will allow you to organize you physical evidence in a systematic manner for presentation to the auditor. This simple checklist allows you to bring the document down to simple terms that a professional lay person can understand (policy, procedure, plans, records, documents, audits and reviews).

The checklist will allow the organization to divide the compliance activity into manageable work packages such as procedures, plans, documents etc.

The checklist is available in PDF or word format. The latter format allows you to tailor the document to your business case or the media that your organization wants to use the checklist in such as excel web page format or any other end product type in order to meet compliance with the standard in the most efficient way possible.

The checklist comes with 4 hours of free consultation, from experts that have firsthand knowledge of the underlying standard, to answer questions on the standards and checklists and is valid for 60 days after purchase of the product.
