ISO Certifications 9001:2015 Apply Now!
In 2012, ISO TC 176 - responsible for ISO 9001 development - celebrated 25 years of implementing ISO 9001, and concluded that it is necessary to create a new QMS model for the next 25 years. This is why commenced the official work on big revision of ISO 9001, starting with the new QM principles. This moment was considered by important specialists in the field as “beginning of a new era in the development of quality management systems.” As a result of an intensive work of this technical committee, the revised standard ISO 9001:2015 was published by ISO on 23 September 2015. The scope of the standard has not changed. However the structure and core terms were modified to allow the standard to integrate more easily with other international management systems standards.
The 2015 version is also less prescriptive than its predecessors and focuses on performance. This was achieved by combining the process approach with risk-based thinking, and employing the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle at all levels in the organization.
Some of the key changes include:
• Greater emphasis on building a management system suited to each organization’s particular needs
• A requirement that those at the top of an organization be involved and accountable, aligning quality with wider business strategy
• Risk-based thinking throughout the standard makes the whole management system a preventive tool and encourages continuous improvement

ISO 13485:2003Apply Now!
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
ISO 13485Apply Now!
ISO 13485 is an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard, published in 2016, that represents the requirements for a comprehensive quality management system for the design and manufacture of devices. This standard supersedes earlier documents such as EN 46001 and EN 46002 (both 1997), the previously published ISO 13485 (1996 and 2003), and ISO 13488 (also 1996). Though it is tailored to the industry's quality system expectations and regulatory requirements, an organization does not need to be actively manufacturing medical devices or their components to seek certification to this standard, in contrast to the automotive sector's ISO/TS 16949, where only firms with an active request for quotation, or on the bid list, of an International Automotive Task Force supply chain manufacturer can seek registration.

ISO/DTS 9002Apply Now!
Quality management systems -ISO 9001:2015 A new standard, ISO/TS 9002, Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2015, is being developed to assist users in implementing an ISO 9001-based quality management system. The Technical Specification (TS) is intended to be informative and provide guidance on the requirements in ISO 9001, with a clause by clause correlation to clauses 4-10 in ISO 9001. ISO/TS 9002 will not add new requirements to ISO 9001. However, it will give examples of what an organization can do. These examples will not be definitive and only represent possibilities, not all of which are necessarily suitable for every organization. ISO 9001 contains requirements that can be objectively audited or assessed. ISO/TS 9002 will include examples, descriptions, and options to help implement a quality management system and to strengthen its relation to the overall management of an organization. While the guidelines in ISO/TS 9002 will be consistent with the ISO 9001 quality management system model, they are not intended to provide interpretations of the requirements in ISO 9001 or be used for audit purposes. ISO/TS 9002 is currently at the Committee Draft level.

CE MARKING Apply Now!
"CE Marking" is now used in all EU official documents. "CE Mark" is also in use, but it is NOT the official term. For instance, in the Directive 2007/47/ec, of 5 September 2007, amending the directives 90/385/eec, 93/42/eec & 98/8/ec, the term CE Marking appears 9 times whereas CE Mark appears nowhere in the entire 35-page document. CE Marking on a product is a manufacturer's declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation, in practice by many of the so-called Product Directives
