ISO 13485:2016 AWARENESS FOR MEDICAL SERVICE
Medical device quality management system (MDQMS) is a structured system of procedures and processes covering all aspects of design, manufacturing, supplier management, risk management, complaint handling, clinical data, storage, distribution, product labelling, and more. Most medical devices will require some form of a QMS; the complexity of the QMS will vary based on the classification of the device.
ISO 13485:2016 was published in March 2016. ISO 13485:2016 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. Such organizations can be involved in one or more stages of the life-cycle, including design and development, production, storage and distribution, installation, or servicing of a medical device and design and development or provision of associated activities (e.g. technical support). The ISO 13485 standard is an effective solution to meet the comprehensive requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Adopting ISO 13485 provides a practical foundation for manufacturers to address the regulations and responsibilities as well as demonstrating a commitment to the safety and quality of medical devices. ISO 13485:2016 can also be used by suppliers or external parties that provide product, including quality management system-related services to such organizations.
