Functional Safety related services

Cambridge Consultants applies its own proprietary product development process (PDP) to all non-medical projects. Our Medical Development Process (MDP) is an ISO13485 registered, FDA 21 CFR 820 and ISO62304 compliant quality management system that is applied to medical projects. In both cases, risk identification is mandatory during the project definition and specification phase.

The risk register and hazard log created at that early stage are used as tools to drive the design and verification phases. They are maintained and reviewed throughout the project lifecycle.

This analysis enables an appropriate level of functional safety to be applied to each element of the product and, most importantly for time-to-market, avoids unnecessary over-specification that does nothing to improve safety.

Cambridge Consultants also undertakes independent technical reviews against safety requirements.

Functional Safety resources

Cambridge Consultants is very familiar with developing novel products which may have functionalities that fall outside of those covered by the basic safety standards. Within our laboratories we are experienced in developing, validating and executing safety test protocols for non-standard functionalities.
