Quality Systems


Why implement a quality system?

Regulations for Medical Devices and In Vitro Diagnostics include quality system requirements.
  • The European Directives include quality system requirements. Although ISO certification is not a requirement, EN ISO13485:2012 is the harmonized standard for quality system requirements and ISO13485 certification will give the manufacturer several advantages.
  • In the USA, manufacturers are subject to QSR regulations (21 CFR 820 Quality System Requirements).
  • The Canadian authorities impose ISO13485 certification by a registrar, accredited by Health Canada.
