What is ISO 13485 for?
Although the ISO 13485 standard evolved from ISO 9001, it differs from the original standard in many respects. While ISO 9001 focuses on customer satisfaction and continuous improvement, ISO 13485 focuses on compliance with legislation. Another key element is risk management in the area of design and development, and validation of the process of manufacturing a medical product or providing a service.
How can ISO 13485 help us?
This standard is absolutely essential for organizations working in the field of healthcare. Only via the ISO 13485 certification you can prove that you meet the medical standard. A valid ISO 13489 certificate also allows you to tender for public contracts. There are also countless secondary benefits: with MDQMS you gain a better market position, strengthen your brands, show the quality of your risk management system, set up effective workflows, and more.
Can the ISO 13485 standard be used in areas other than healthcare?
The standard focuses primarily on medical devices. The certification is suitable for any company that focuses on the production of medical products, operation of equipment, provision of medical services or IT solutions for healthcare in general. ISO 13485 certification often runs in parallel with ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Aspects Management) or ISO 27001 (Cyber Data Protection).
