Being the current standard for medical devices; the ISO 13485 prescribes a set of standards that are to be implemented by manufacturers of medical devices. The aim of ISO 13485 is to ensure that medical devices meet the prescribed quality standards. This standard was conceived with the intention of making medical device manufacturers understand ways by which to establish a medical device risk management process.
Implementation needs proper training
Implementation of the ISO 13485 needs expert knowledge. Medical device organizations that need to implement it need to have trained staff, which needs to be aware of what to do when they are approached by an auditor. They should also know what documentation must be completed, kept up-to-date, and be made available, so that the organization can avoid major and minor findings. In addition, they should also be thoroughly aware of the issues that auditors constantly look for. They need to also be knowledgeable about the new updated standard.

To make medical device professionals that face an ISO audit familiar with the dynamics of an ISO audit and to acquaint them with what it takes to be prepared for one when it happens, GlobalCompliancePanel, a globally known provider of professional trainings for the areas of regulatory compliance, will be organizing a two-day, in person seminar.
