Streamline regulatory compliance and time-to-market. ISO 13485 is the international quality management system (QMS) standard for medical devices. The standard has been designed to help organisations demonstrate that their products meet stringent industry regulations and support patient safety through a risk-based approach to the QMS, an enhanced focus on regulatory requirements, and increased controls over suppliers. It applies to both organisations that manufacture devices and those that support device manufacturers, enabling them to optimize their processes and streamline product development lifecycles.
