13485 certification

Return ListDate:2016-03-17Read:17

The standard is based on the ISO 9001 standard, increased the special requirements of the medical equipment industry, formulated, that is, the so-called 1+1 standards. Therefore, the ISO 13485 standard meets the requirements of ISO 9001 standard. After the promulgation of the ISO 9001:2008 standard, ISO/TC 210 issued a new ISO 13485:2003 standard.

The new standard is no longer a guideline for the implementation of the ISO9001 standard in the medical device industry, neither of which is compatible. New standard 1.1 general principles: "the main purpose of this standard is to facilitate the implementation of harmonized regulatory requirements for quality management systems.". Therefore, this standard contains specific requirements for some medical devices and cuts down some requirements in ISO 9001 that are not suitable for regulatory requirements. Because of these exclusions, the quality management system that meets this standard cannot claim compliance with the ISO 9001 standard unless its quality management system meets all the requirements of ISO 9001. "
