Hi,

Is there a regulatory requirement or industry standard for contract sterilisers (EtO, Gamma, etc) to be certified to ISO13485 or is it just common practice?

Contract sterilisers must comply will the applicable standard for the service they provide, e.g. ISO 11135 for EyO sterilisation, and the general standard for QMS - ISO 13485. You can have a look at websites for contract sterilisers for benchmarking.

Thanks guys, yes, the contract steriliser should comply with ISO1135 or ISO11137, but you don't get certified directly to those standards. Its usually within the scope of the QMS. So could a sterilisation contractor be certified to ISO9001 or does it have to be ISO13485?

I see... since compliance to ISO standard is voluntary I don't think you have to comply with ISO 13485 but it does look better with potential clients.

I think it is common practice for any that sterilise medical devices to have 13485 but I don't think it is mandatory (same as for manufacturers).
