ISO 13485 and Quality Management for Medical Devices / Internal Auditing
The course consists of two parts: Quality management for Medical Devices and ISO 13485 (2 days) & Internal auditing for medical device companies and ISO 19011 (1 day).
This course is specifically tailored to make the requirements of the ISO 13485 as tangible and concrete as possible, so participants can confidently work in an organisation where ISO 13485 requirements apply. The second, and optional, part of the course will take you through the steps of performing an internal audit based on the principles of ISO 19011.
Outcome and content
The learning goals are:
- To improve the participants ability to understand and work within any area of a quality management system that meets ISO 13485 requirements.
- To increase the ability to interpret if a requirement of the standard has been met or not
- To improve participants abilities to author and implement documented procedures within the organization
As there is no one-size-fits all implementation of a Quality management system, the course focuses on tools and methods to understand the standard and apply the requirements in as efficient way as possible in the organization you work in.
