Exam Prep for Medical Device Quality Management Systems
This recommended practice provides information that will allow the medical device data system manufacturer to implement a quality management system that is commensurate with the risk presented by the device, the complexity of device and manufacturing processes, and the size and complexity of organization.
This book will be a substantial revision, which will reflect the new version of the ISO 13485:2016. This represents the standard protocols that all medical device manufacturers must follow, in the fabrication of their products. It will focus on changes in the structure of the quality management system; change in the documentation for quality managemeent systems and finally, present the different methods of implementation of the standard requirements within the organization.This new version was initiated in 2016, thus all apprpriate enterprises using the old standard must convert to the new version, now available.The Second Edition will clarify, explain and demonstrate the new version.
The purpose of this expanded field guide is to assist organizations, step-by-step, in implementing a quality management system (QMS) in conformance with ISO 13485:2016, whether from scratch or by transitioning from variations of the ISO 13485 family. In keeping with ISO 9000:2015s definition of quality as the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfills requirements, Myhrberg, Raciti, and Myhrberg have identified the requirements and inherent characteristics (distinguishing features) for this expanded field guide. Within the guide, each subclause containing requirements is the focus of a two-page visual spread that consistently presents features that fulfill the requirements listed below. This guide will: -Provide a user-friendly guide to ISO 13485:2016s requirements for implementation purposes -Identify the documents/documentation required, along with recommendations on what to consider retaining/adding to a QMS during ISO 13485:2016 implementation -Guide internal auditor(s) regarding what to ask to verify that a conforming and effective QMS exists -Direct management on what it must do and should consider to satisfy ISO 13485:2016s enhanced requirements, as well as on the responsibilities for top management -Depict step-by-step in flowchart form what must occur to create an effective, conforming QMS
