ISO 13485: Sets the requirements for manufactures of medical devices

ISO 13485 focus on risk, regulatory and legal requirements by eliminating emphasis on continual improvement and regulatory compliance; ISO 13485 is a stand alone management system with the purpose to contribute in fulfillment of regulatory requirements and legal obligations. ISO 13485 is an excellent match for FDA cGMP QSR (21 CFR Part 820 and CDRH Data Base) and other equivalent requirements worldwide. ISO 13485 provides a means for organizations in the supply-chain of medical devices to manage regulatory and legal requirements including interaction with HIPAA as well European Union MDD. Medical artifacts, devices, equipment…

ISO 13485 requires that risk management be documented and conducted throughout a product’s life cycle, from conceptual to usage. ISO 14971 provides guidance to assess risk for medical devices. For additional information on ISO 13485 visit IMDFR.COM. Contact us to see how we can help.

At BRS we take the approach that certification to ISO 13485 is to provide an impartial evidence of competence in managing regulatory and legal requirements to point-of-origin and point-of-sales. Our professional experience derives from working with major medical corporations such as GEMS, Kimberly-Clark Professional Health Care, ITL, Grifol’s and Kapprel.
