Medical Devices Quality Management Systems



This international standard establishes the specific requirements for organizations that provide or manufacture medical devices.
ISO 13485 describes the requirements for the quality management system of an organization in the field of medical devices, which includes the latest improvements in quality management, technology, and regulations. Organizations may be involved in one or more stages of the life cycle, including design and development, production, storage and distribution, as well as the installation or maintenance of a medical device, and the design and development of associated activities (like technical support).

A medical device is any product used for diagnose, prevent, or treatment of a medical condition. Medical devices can be basic health products used to cover or protect a wound, or dentist chairs, pacemakers, vital support machines, and even in-vitro diagnostic reagents.
