This document is ISO-900X series with a few additions particular to the medical device industry. The major additions are in section 4.9, and address housekeeping, cleanliness, and PM.

Christian's got it. Also keep in mind that how much of it applies to your situation depends on the classification of the devices you make. Some of it only applies if your product is active (powered) and/or implantable. The definitions at the front help a lot.

ISO 13485 is based on, and very similar to, EN 46001, which seems to be slowly fading.

It appears there is an update in 2003. This is the catalog from ISO quoting prices in Swiss Francs for 13485 and its companion, 14969:1999.

Abstract
ISO 13485:2003 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer requirements and regulatory requirements applicable to medical devices and related services.
The primary objective of ISO 13485:2003 is to facilitate harmonized medical device regulatory requirements for quality management systems. As a result, it includes some particular requirements for medical devices and excludes some of the requirements of ISO 9001 that are not appropriate as regulatory requirements. Because of these exclusions, organizations whose quality management systems conform to this International Standard cannot claim conformity to ISO 9001 unless their quality management systems conform to all the requirements of ISO 9001.
All requirements of ISO 13485:2003 are specific to organizations providing medical devices, regardless of the type or size of the organization.
If regulatory requirements permit exclusions of design and development controls, this can be used as a justification for their exclusion from the quality management system. These regulations can provide alternative arrangements that are to be addressed in the quality management system. It is the responsibility of the organization to ensure that claims of conformity with ISO 13485:2003 reflect exclusion of design and development controls.
If any requirement(s) in Clause 7 of ISO 13485:2003 is(are) not applicable due to the nature of the medical device(s) for which the quality management system is applied, the organization does not need to include such a requirement(s) in its quality management system.
The processes required by ISO 13485:2003, which are applicable to the medical device(s), but which are not performed by the organization, are the responsibility of the organization and are accounted for in the organization's quality management system.

Marc,

ISO 13485:2003 was released last summer and it is the latest and greatest.

For Health Canada, companies have till March 15, 2006 to switch over from ISO 13485 or 13488,1996 version.

The new standard is based on the ISO 9001:2000 structure.

EN 46001/2 is now obsolete (as of 03/31/04) it was replaced by ISO 13485:2003. In the Last I knew the Notified Bodies/Registrars are not yet issuing accredited Certificates as there is no accreditation scheme available yet. (don't quote me on this as it may have changed). ISO/TR 14969 Guidance on the application of ISO 13485:2003 as of 02/13/04 was approved as a DIS.

If you order a copy of ISO 13485:2003 it does include a very informative break down of teh differences between ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 13485:2003.

With regard to accreditation. There are now several bodies that can give accreditation to the new version of the standard. Certainly SGS can, and I believe BSI can also.
