ISO 13485:2016 Medical Stamping and Fabrication Certification
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has created a quality management system for medical devices that are listed under ISO 13485:2016. The ISO 13485:2016 certification represents the requirements for a comprehensive quality management system for the design and manufacturing of medical devices.
ISO 13485:2016 standard certification ultimately allows medical device manufacturers to display their quality management practices in a practical way, while also protecting the consumer from medical devices that do not qualify for this standardization.
Tempco Manufacturing's QMS is ISO 13485:2016 certified. Contact us for more information regarding quality management systems for medical devices, or call us at 651-452-1441 with any questions that you may have.
ISO 13485:2016 Quality Management System Standardization Advantages
The ISO 13485:2016 quality management system for medical stamping and fabrication projects is designed to be used as a guide throughout the life cycle of the medical device that is being manufactured. ISO 13485:2016 helps to form established supply chain specifications and production methods for third party medical device companies that produce medical parts. Some of the other benefits related to the ISO 13485:2016 standard, include:
- Work environment controls to ensure product safety.
- Inspection and traceability requirements
- Demonstrate compliance with regulatory and legal requirements
- Corrective and preventive action verification requirements
- Proper quality management systems (QMS) practices produce safe and effective medical devices
Who Utilizes ISO 13485:2016 Quality Management Standardization?
ISO 13485:2016 certification is available to all companies that seek it, no matter the company’s size or type. However, certain requirements may differ depending on the type of part or complete medical device that is being produced. Additionally, this certification can be used by other internal and external parties, such as certification bodies, to help them with their certification processes, or by supply chain organizations that are required by contract to conform.
ISO 13485:2016 for Medical Devices
A medical device is classified as a machine, implant, instrument, apparatus, or something of a similar nature that is designed for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease or other medical conditions. ISO 13485:2016 certified companies provide an effective quality management system (QMS) that provides a specific set of policies, processes and procedures that help an organization meet the specific standardization requirements. This certification empowers an organization to reliably provide effective and innocuous medical devices that fulfil customer and regulatory requirements. It is also supple enough to meet the individual needs of different types of organizations that produce medical devices or medical device parts.
