What Is ISO 13485?
ISO 13485:2016 is an effective solution for meeting the stringent requirements of a quality management system (QMS) related to medical devices. It is a practical foundation for chemical suppliers to meet Medical Device Directives, regulations, and responsibilities, while also demonstrating that they are committed to the safety and quality of medical devices.
Under ISO 13485, businesses must be able to demonstrate their ability to provide medical devices and related services that constantly meet customer and relevant regulatory requirements.
At ReAgent, we take the quality of our products, services, and processes very seriously. We are accredited under ISO 13485 to manufacture in vitro diagnostic reagents for medical devices. This accreditation is underpinned by our Quality Policy which details what we do to manage our quality management system correctly and responsibly.
