Risk-based approach

We are doing our first ISO 13485 certification now. Our auditor want to have "Risk-based approach" for some of our processes. Can you provide me some example here? Our auditor say they can be as an unique standard table which we integrate it use in different processes. Do you have any idea here?

Definitively it can be in a table where you will have your processes, risks than can occur, and then control measures.
