ISO 13485:2016 is the international standard that defines quality management system requirements for organizations that are or may become involved in one or more stages of the medical device product lifecycle. This includes design and development, production, storage and distribution, and installation or servicing of a medical device, as well as design and development or provision of associated activities such as technical support. ISO 13485:2016 can also be used by suppliers or external parties that provide product and quality management system-related services to such organizations.

Poor management of processes at any phase of the medical device lifecycle can result in inconsistency in the quality of products, and those poor quality devices can filter through the production line and into the market, drastically impacting your customers and your company. However, when quality management processes are properly managed under an ISO 13485:2016-certified quality management system, medical device manufacturers and their supply chain are better equipped to ensure that quality system requirements protect all phases in the medical device lifecycle. ISO 13485:2016 also provides an effective base model for compliance with:

  • European Medical Devices Directive (MDD) 93/42/EEC
  • European In Vitro Medical Devices Diagnostic Directive (IVDD) 98/79/EC
  • Canadian Medical Devices Regulations SOR/98-282
  • Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP)
  • Requirements of other regulatory bodies in countries around the world
