What is the ISO 13485 Standard?

ISO 13485 is an internationally recognized standard for assessing a medical device’s quality management system. It’s been adopted from the ISO 9001 QMS standard series and is the world’s most recognized standard related to medical devices.

By being ISO compliant, your medical device satisfies requirements that are upheld throughout the industry, which can offer several benefits, including:

  • Increased market access – By earning the ISO 13485 QMS certification, you can instill confidence in business partners, potential investors and foreign markets.
  • A focus on safety and performance – This is the most widely respected standard for Quality Management Systems, meaning devices abide by safe design, manufacturing, installation, and servicing procedures. Risk analysis is an integral aspect of the standard throughout the product lifecycle.
  • Additional insights on how to improve processes – When your Quality Management System is evaluated against the top standard in the industry, you’ll be able to identify areas for improvement and ways to increase efficiency.

CE Mark Certification for Medical Devices

ISO 13485 also acts as the QMS standard accepted under European regulations for obtaining a CE mark on medical devices. CE marking represents the manufacturer’s claim that their product is compliant with the appropriate EU Medical Device Directives and provides for distribution within the European community. It is legally required for medical products to be sold in the European Union.

If your medical device is expanding into the European markets and you need the CE mark, you need to start with transitioning or becoming ISO 13485 certified.
