Hi Fellows,
I looked this morning on the list of EU MDD harmonised standards and could not see ISO 13485:2016. Can someone explain this and advise when will ISO 13485:2016 become "state of the art" in the European Union.

Thanks,
Shimon

Okay, I think I got my answer.

EN ISO 13485:2016 is ISO 13485:2016 plus three annexes. The EN version has been submitted to the European Commission for harmonisation to the European Medical Device and In Vitro Diagnostic Directives. I guess its just a formal process while the cessation of EN ISO 13485:2012 is still scheduled for March 2019.

P.S. I do not like to bureaucratic nature of the European regulatory system. They keep on piling requirements and expect the notified bodies and manufactures to get along with them.

That is correct. EN ISO 13485:2016 states the following:

(European Foreword) "This document supersedes EN ISO 13485:2012"
(Endorsement Notice) "The text of ISO 13485:2016 has been approved by CEN as EN ISO 13485:2016 without any modification"

As for it not being on the harmonized standards list yet, we always aim for the latest version, and justify to our NB that it reflects the "state of the art" as required by directives.

P.S. I do not like to bureaucratic nature of the European regulatory system. They keep on piling requirements and expect the notified bodies and manufactures to get along with them.
Not limited to the European system... but, ya, I hear you. :yes:
