ISO 13485 is an international standard for establishing quality management in the medical device industry. The practice of implementing a QMS is a long-term tactical decision that, once in place, works to guide the medical device company to meet standards constantly, improve general performance, and to provide a basis for maintainable development initiatives. A QMS also gives assurance to customers that the requirements for quality have been met. I’ve noticed that the medical device industry is missing an obvious interpretation of the ISO 13485 requirements, so I’ve written this guide and translate the requirements into plain English.
The industry’s best-practice is implementing electronic quality management. eQMS is a system that is very easy to maintain, it makes all information available online to audit easily, and any recent changes can be communicated quickly to all staff members. qmsWrapper is a ready-to-use eQMS for medical device companies. It is interconnected Quality Management software for companies focused on regulatory issues, and quality requirements specific to these companies.
