About ISO 13485
ISO 13485 regulates the basic requirements for a quality management system for manufacturers of medical devices and other medical technology stakeholders.
The requirements include management responsibility, resource management, product realization and service provision, and measurement, analysis, and improvement.
ISO 13485 relation to other standards
ISO 13485 extends the requirements of ISO 9001 for a quality management system to include the specific requirements for medical devices.
The requirements of ISO 13485 partially overlap with the requirements of IEC 62304 Medical device software – software life cycle processes and the IEC 60601 family of standards. ISO 13485 supports the requirements of IEC 62304 and the IEC 60601 family of standards, for example in the product manufacturing process, in the change management process and the CAPA process. ISO TR 20416 is used to support the required post-market-surveillance process.
The required internal audits are successfully implemented by complying with the specifications in ISO 19011.
