ISO 13485:2016 Medical Devices Quality Management System Certificate
The ISO 13485 standard is a good way to meet all of the standards for a medical device quality management system. A medical device is a product, such as an instrument, machine, implant, or in vitro reagent, that is used in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, illness and disease rehabilitation, or other medical situations. Adherence to ISO 13485 provides a solid framework for manufacturers to satisfy Medical Device Directives, rules, and duties while also demonstrating a commitment to medical device safety and quality.
What does ISO 13485 stand for?
ISO 13485 is the most frequently used international standard for quality management in the medical device industry. The ISO 13485 standard, developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is an effective way to meet the entire requirements for a QMS in the medical device business. Adopting ISO 13485 gives manufacturers a realistic foundation for addressing the EU Medical Device Directive (MDD), the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR), and other legislation, as well as demonstrating a commitment to medical device safety and quality.
