Industries

Medical Device

The Medical Device industry falls under the ISO 13485 Standard.

ISO 13485:2003 gives specific requirements for a quality management system where a company needs to demonstrate its capabilities in providing medical devices and related services that always meet customer requirements and regulatory requirements that apply to medical devices and related services.

The main objective of ISO 13485:2003 is to assist synchronized medical device regulatory requirements for quality management systems. Therefore, it includes some specific requirements for medical devices and excludes some of the requirements of ISO 9001 that are not suitable as regulatory requirements. Because of these exclusions, companies whose quality management systems conform to this International Standard cannot declare conformity to ISO 9001 unless their quality management systems conform to all the requirements of ISO 9001.

All requirements of ISO 13485:2003 are specific to companies providing medical devices, despite the type or size of the organization.
