ISO 13485

Quality Management of Medical Devices

What is ISO 13485 standard?

EU directives and Greek legislation specify the development of a quality management system for medical devices applicable to producers, importers, traders and distributors. System implementation covers company’s compliance obligations regarding EOF (National Organization for Medicines) requirements, MDR regulation, Ministerial Decision (YA) 1348/2004 etc.

Through implementing the system, the company can obtain the international ISO 13485 certificate or the YA 1348 certificate of implementation by an independent accredited body. The certification, besides adding value to an organisation and enhancing the marketing, creates new business opportunities in the medical device market.
