Medical Devices Quality Management Systems (MDQMS)
Our unique method can get you ready for ISO certification in as quick as 30 days with no compromises.
ISO 13485 is based on ISO 9001 with a particular focus on Medical devices (of course). The United States has the highest uptake of ISO 13485 in the world commanding 30% of all certifications worldwide. Quite an accomplishment and it shows that the USA is leading the way in compliance.
Most industrialized countries have some forms of medical device regulation, i.e., the US Food and Drug Administration [FDA]. Before this standard, there was no single standard to harmonize the regulations for quality management systems globally making exporting difficult and precarious. Enter stage right ISO 13485.
Some regulators around the world directly require certification to ISO 13485. While this is not currently a requirement in the US, there is a US law that is similar in almost all aspects to ISO 13485, which is 21 CFR Part 820. Most US companies looking to send product outside of the US will also get ISO 13485 Certification.
Putting the regulatory considerations aside, implementing an ISO management system standard into your business represents good management practice, or in the case of medical devices “Good Manufacturing Practice [GMP].” By implementing ISO 13485, an organization becomes a better bet for their suppliers. Not only they have implemented important controls directly related to medical device manufacturing, but also they have provided efficiencies and effective management through:
What is the role of the customers in all of this? Of course, the customer is also king, and all the regulations in the world make no difference to your business if you can’t attract and satisfy your customers enough. Many companies can design product and promote, but it is the consistent quality and attention to customer satisfaction that brings long-term success in the market. Customer satisfaction, of course, is a prime goal of the ISO 13485 standard; no wonder it’s appealing to customers.
Proving yourself as a good and consistent supplier to your customer can be improved by certification to an ISO management system standard. As the importance of compliance and satisfaction grows, you will be able to draw the attention of a number of customers who will not work with non-ISO certified organizations. Many organizations are finding that no matter how good their product is, customers need more reassurance, they want their suppliers to be certified. Moreover, many organizations are finding that losing even one contract can well pay for the cost of implementing good management practice and getting certified. If your management system was well documented and implemented, you just might even enjoy life a little more with the knowledge that your business is in safe hands and operated, as it should.
For medical device manufacturers or suppliers who are looking for opportunities to grab new markets, conformity with regulatory requirements is a mandate. If you are one of those entrepreneurs who want to avail the competitive advantages in the medical device manufacturing industry, ISO 13485 certification is an ideal choice for you!
Your business system’s compliance with ISO 13485 can help your business open doors to unexploited national and international business opportunities. Even, you will be able to enjoy a bunch of benefits, such as-
In most developed countries, National Regulatory authorities prefer manufacturers or suppliers that have a third party audited, ISO certified management system. Investment in a certified management system attracts more customers around the world. In other words, certification to ISO 13485 can expedite your market entry in other countries.
When it comes to supplying medical devices, a supplier needs to spend money not only on the manufacturing process but also on the advertisements and promotion. When you are offering ISO certified products, you don’t have any need for advertisement. The ISO mark tells all about your product. Therefore, such a management tool can reduce your costs of sales and promotion.
What do you need to gain the certification? You need a well-developed management system based on a uniform and globally accepted process control system. This certified system enables you to improve your manufacturing process as well as the quality of your products. It helps you foster a strong bonding with your suppliers, business associates, and customers. As an outcome, you will find your overall business performance improved.
ISO 13485 is an internationally recognized standard for quality management in the medical device manufacturing and supplying industry. Certification to this standard demonstrates that your company is serious about maintaining the quality of the offered products and that you have taken right initiatives (adherence to the ISO 13485 standard) to ensure the quality of your products.
No matter what the business is, customer satisfaction matters the most. The framework of ISO 13485 is based on a set of voluntary quality principles. One of these crucial principles is meeting the customer satisfaction. You can meet customer requirements and gain customer satisfaction by reviewing the customer’s requirements frequently and update your offerings accordingly. Modern consumers are conscious. Most of them would not entertain a supplier that is not certified to ISO 13485. Moreover, customer satisfaction helps you turn your customers into permanent and loyal customers.
