Presented by George Yanulis, D.Eng., EAS Independent Consultant
FDA’s shift to a Quality System Regulation structure of ISO 13485:2016 is an effort to harmonize medical device regulations as well as reduce compliance and record keeping burdens faced by current medical device manufacturers. But will those operating under 21 CFR 820 Quality Management Systems make the voluntary switch?
While ISO 13485 is an international standard, its focus on design and development planning and controls, based on risks and outputs differs in many respects to the GMPs under which medical device firms selling products in the U.S. have been operating. Making the shift to ISO standards requires a shift in thinking, planning and execution of manufacturing policies and working procedures.
Learn more about the ISO standards and how they might benefit your business. Join George Yanulis, D.Eng., and ensure your medical device manufacturing is as efficient, safe and compliant as it can be.
