Transition to ISO 13485:2016

You have until March 2019 to update your current ISO 13485 certification. Make sure you’re prepared!

Recently enhanced, this course includes more workshops, tips, and best practices focused on auditing to the revised standard, so that you’ll be ready for your ISO 13485:2016 upgrade audit. The updated course also features discussions on ISO 13485:2016’s relationship with MDSAP and the EU’s new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) – a strong understanding of ISO 13485:2016 is a key preparatory step for MDSAP and EU MDR transitions.

ISO 13485:2016 provides clarifications and new requirements to improve medical device safety and performance. Major changes in the standard include an increased focus on risk management throughout the product life cycle, the supply chain, as well as device usability and postmarket surveillance requirements.
In this course, you will thoroughly review the revised standard, assess its impact on your quality management system, and gain actionable knowledge to make your ISO 13485:2016 transition easier and more successful.
