Help!!!

Howdy everyone.

I have just found out that we will be pursuing certification to ISO 13485 (actually 13488). Can anyone recommend any good resources for information so I can get up to speed on this standard. I have a very good understanding of 9001:2000 (which I've heard is similar), but know nothing about the medical side of things. I need to find out what the major differences are, and what extra steps need to be taken (we are certified to 9001:2000). Thank you in advance for all your help.

Richard, I don't have a lot of time this morning but just a qucik note. There is not really a major difference between 13485:96 and 9001:94, now with that said are you aware that the revised 13485 is set to be released in the first part of 2003? It is similar to 9001:00, however there are more requirments for procedures that 9K2K requires. A couple questions you need to ask is does your company sell in Canada, and is your registrar qualifed to audit you to 13485?

I will try and give you more details in the next day or two, in the mean time feel free to e-mail me or send me a private message.

ISO GUY,

Thanks for your response. I look forward to hearing more details from you.

To answer your questions real quick, I have heard that there is a new version coming out soon, we don't sell anything in Canada, and our registrar does cover 13484/8 (I have requested some information from them).

We haven't been asked to meet any standards (even though we do manufacture on a small scale for a medical device company). It is mostly being considered as a marketing tool since there are a number of medical device companies in the area. Actually what started the whole thing yesterday was our marketing director noticed that on a competitors brochure :vfunny:

I greatly appreciate any information you (or anyone) can share, as the first time I even really heard about 13485/8 was yesterday. :confused:

I don't know what kind of timeframe we're looking at, but it seems to be picking up a lot of steam around here, so I'm thinking it is going to become a priority soon.

Thanks :bigwave:

Does anyone know where I can obtain a copy of the draft version of the new 13485? I've tried searching, but can only find the older versions available. Thanks.

Does anyone know if ISO 14969 is being updated with 13485? Is this document even worth having?

Yes, ISO/TS 14969 is being updated as well. Is it worth having at this point IMHO I would say no.

Too bad you didn't live close by, I am giving a presentation on this topic in a couple weeks for our local ASQ. The same one I gave for the IMDMC - Indiania Medical Device Manufacturers Council.

I think we pretty much decided that 14969 probably wasn't essential.

We are going to be looking at training for this, so if you have any information please send it and I will pass it on to my training coordinator.

Have you seen or heard of any companies that have been 9001:2000 and then added 13485 later? Looking at the standard, it doesn't look too difficult to do.

I would like to retract my previous statement. At a quick glance it looked like it wouldn't be difficult adding 13485 to 9001:2000. But after reading it in detail I realized that there is a lot more involved to it. :bonk:
