FDA recognizes ISO 14971:2019 as consensus standard
On Jan 14, 2020 the US FDA has granted Recognized Consensus Standard status to the third edition of the ISO 14971 risk management standard for medical devices and IVD products ( see: FDA Recognized Consensus Standards ).
The transition period of the previous standard edition, ISO 1497:2007, will last through late 2022. Therefore, any declarations of conformity to ISO 14971:2007 included in medical device and IVD premarket submissions will be accepted by the FDA until December 25, 2022.
Afterwards a medical device submission requires a declaration of conformity to the latest edition ISO 14971:2019.
