ISO-13485:2016-Training-Medical-Device

Why was ISO 13485 revised?

ISO 13485:2016 sets out the requirements for a quality management system specific to the medical devices industry. It has recently been revised to respond to the latest developments in quality management, technology and regulatory requirements that relate to the industry.

What does ISO 13485:2016 include?

With the standard applicable to so many types of products, the revision was no easy task. A medical device is any product intended for use in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of medical conditions. They range from simple products like wound dressings to dentist chairs, cardiac pacers, life-support machines and even in vitro diagnostic reagents.

How is the new ISO 13485:2016 better?

Improvements in the new version of the standard include broadening its applicability to include all organizations involved in the life cycle of the product, from concept to end of life, greater alignment with regulatory requirements and a greater focus on post-market surveillance including complaint handling.

There is also a greater emphasis on having the appropriate infrastructure, particularly for the production of sterile medical devices, and more focus on risk management.

Monday-Thursday  8:00 am – 6:00 pm

Days: 3 • CEU Hrs: 2.4

Audience: Beginner to Advanced

 

Overview:

This course prepares you to perform internal QMS audits using industry-proven techniques and to apply proper interpretation of the ISO 13485 standard and MDSAP requirements to real life audit situations. You’ll follow the full audit process including: audit tools and preparation, opening meetings, audit interviews, closing meetings, and reporting.  This is a very practical class that is not “bogged-down” with academic discussions of quality topics that have limited utility for class attendees.

This Internal Audit class makes extensive use of activities and case studies to help you fully understand the requirements of quality system auditing and apply MDSAP and ISO 13485 requirements. Since people “lock” new understanding into long-term memory much better when they apply it, lecture time is held to a minimum providing you time to grasp and then practice your newly acquired skills in simulated real-life audit situations.

 

Who Should Attend

Individuals who will perform audits to regulatory requirements or Quality Management Systems, individuals assisting their organizations toward ISO 13485 registration or individuals who are frequently audited should attend this training. Quality directors, managers, engineers, auditors, ISO coordinators, laboratory quality professionals, and anyone engaged in quality audits will benefit from this training.

 

Prerequisites

There are no required prerequisites, though familiarity with ISO, US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, and Japan quality system requirements for medical devices is helpful.  All attendees are required to bring their own copy of the ISO 13485 Quality Management Standard Requirements to this training course. These will not be provided for you. We strongly advise you bring a “paper” copy.

 

Course Objectives

  • Prepared to conduct a solo internal audit at successful course completion
  • Understand the MDSAP audit model.
