Doug Witwer explains the benefits of
ISO 13485 was established in 2003 as an international standard for the design, manufacture and distribution of medical devices. While compatible with the quality management standard ISO 9001, ISO 13485 requires proof of implementation and maintenance, but not continuous improvement.
SQA offers ISO 13485 certification to organizations worldwide. Companies achieving ISO 13485 certification benefit from:
- enhanced safety controls in the work environment
- documentation for preventive and corrective actions
- alignment with FDA and other regulatory regulations
- improved products and services
- enhanced communication with suppliers
An audit performed by SQA resulting in ISO 13485 certification provides your business:
- Clear and well-communicated best practices for design, manufacture and distribution of medical and pharmaceutical devices
- Established supplier quality, implementing a process that facilitates supplier quality programs
- More consistent auditing performance.
