In the highly competitive industry of medical device manufacturing, adhering to the latest ISO certification standard is essential to delivering innovative, high-quality medical products to users around the globe.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a non-government entity comprised of academic and industry professionals that certify companies are compliant with industry-standard best practices in their production and operations.
Introduced in 2014, MDSAP certification requires that the recipient pass an extensive auditing process to prove its existing quality management system meets the requirements set forth by governing bodies in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Japan and Australia for the design and manufacture of medical devices.
Medical device manufacturers are required by Health Canada and other international governing health authorities to update their quality systems to the new standard using the MDSAP program by March 2019 in order to remain in compliance. The ISO 13485:2016 standard for quality management systems places an increased emphasis on risk management and also aligns more closely with the FDA’s Quality System Regulations for medical device companies manufacturing or selling products into the United States.
