The ISO 13485 standard concerns manufactures and suppliers of medical devices.
ISO 13485 is the most accepted standard worldwide for manufacturers of medical. The standard is based on ISO 9001, but includes additional requirements specific to this business sector. In addition, important terms have been defined including: medical device, active medical device, active implanted medical device, sterile medical device, and many more.
A certificate issued by an independent, accredited certification body guarantees that a quality management system has been implemented, documented, used, maintained and improved by the supplier or manufacturer of medical devices.
ISO 13485 supports the reduction of unexpected risks with regard to the devices and enhances their management. This applies not only to companies that construct, produce and service medical devices, but also to organizations distributing and using them. The standard aims to increase the organization’s reputation in the eyes of customers and authorities.
