How long the QMS must be maintained after a medical device is discontinued - would that be the last lot plus the expected lifetime of the device?

Thank you

That is the ISO 13485 requirement, but you also need to consider where you distribute your product to and the applicable regulatory requirements - E.g. EU under MDR is 10 years after last placed on market for devices, 15 years for implantable devices. Japan is also 15 years I believe.

In addition to your QMS requirements, your customer/supplier agreements may have input to this.

In the event of taking the device off the market and shutting down an Established Registration, is it just enough to deregister and delist on FURLS or we need to communicate to FDA separately?
