Quality Management - Medical Devices ISO 13485:2016
ISO 13485 certification, an international standard that defines quality management system (QMS) requirements for manufacturers of medical devices. The primary objective of the standard is to facilitate harmonised QMS requirements for regulatory purposes within the medical device sector.
It is applicable to manufacturers of medical devices and to those organisations that support medical device manufacturers. Manufacturers have a duty to ensure that devices consistently meet customer requirements and meet all applicable regulatory requirements.
However, it includes particular requirements for medical devices and excludes some of the requirements for ISO 9001. In particular, the requirements for customer satisfaction and continual improvement have been modified to make them more appropriate for regulatory purposes.
