Good info shared by @Marc but there may be some parts missing like the risk associated with using SOUP (7.1.2), documentation and evaluation of SOUP known anomalies (7.1.3), and identification (8.1.2).

I don't know if it's explicitly stated anywhere but cybersecurity associated with SOUP should also be considered (can a bad actor, for example, intercept the data communicated by the sensor, alter it, or spoof it?)

Recognize also that it's not a "one and done" thing. You are expected to continually monitor the SOUP provider for new issues, corrections (which might be anomalies you didn't know about before), obsolescence, etc. You should be documenting these post-market activities, findings, and conclusions.
