ISO 13485 is an international standard that defines quality management system requirements for manufacturers of medical devices. ISO 13485 contains requirements essential for organizations operating at any tier in the medical devices and pharmaceutical supply chain. The primary objective of the standard is to facilitate harmonized medical device regulatory requirements and as a result, it includes some particular requirements for manufacture, installation and servicing such as added requirements on record-control, sterilization and risk management.
It is based on ISO 9001. In particular, the requirements for customer satisfaction and continual improvement have been modified to make them more appropriate for regulatory purposes.
Organizations can register to ISO 13485 as a standalone or in conjunction with an ISO 9001 or other registration. An ISO 13485 certification from us demonstrates your organization’s commitment to provide products and related services that consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements applicable to the medical industry.
