Quality Management System
ISO 13485 is the quality management system standard for medical device manufacturers and their sub-tier suppliers and subcontractors. Based on the ISO 9001 standard, ISO 13485 includes additional requirements for medical device manufacturers to demonstrate their intent to comply with applicable regulatory and statutory requirements. ISO 13485 is recognized as an aid in supporting compliance with the Medical Device Directive.
ISO 9001 is an International Quality Management System Standard that specifies requirements within which an organization demonstrates its ability to consistently provide product or service to meet customer and legal requirements, enhancing customer satisfaction and opening the way to continual improvement. The requirements are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or product/service provided. Globally more than one million organizations have implemented ISO 9001 Management Systems (50,000 organizations in North America).
