Can you please help me how to start to learn about Quality Control Documentation?
ISO 14001 communication procedure lacking in ISO 13485
In the iso 14001 EMS there is a section about communication within the company. However in the iso 13485 toolkit there is no such procedure or document. Why is this?. We have our audit on Monday, and one point within iso 13485 is about communication. How should I think here?
Enquiries on Project Plan and review
I have started to implement the SOPs and Appendices provided to me previously and requires clarification on one of the appendices, Project Plan and review.
May I know what do I have to fill in under the column for "inputs", "deliverables" and "resources"? Do you have some example to show us what kind of information do we have to fill in?
Amount of staff ISO 13485
We have seen a reduction in staff in company due to reduction in sales and we are wondering how that can affect our ability to hold and maintain iso 13485. Are there any fixed numbers of staff that one must have to obtain iso 13485 and if staff continues to reduce, what actions should we take. For instance we have our iso certification next week and if we are approved for the iso13485, what can happen afterwards if lets say people decide to leave the company? We are a total of 5 personell today, what would happen if we are only 2 or 3? Should this be risk assessed?
We import medical devices to *** from ***. *** product was CE certified under MDD and can be placed on the market under MDR. The question is how much the product is covered by regulations concerning information provided with the product (section 23 of appendix to MDR)?
Translation of IFU
In order to have your instructions for use translated you have to ensure that the translation is correct a professional.
We have a class III product only used by HCP's. We use a certified translation company who dispatches translation certificates (translated by native speaker with knowledge of the specific discpine and reviewed by a second reviewer).
Is it correct that after the IFU has been translated an additional validation needs to be done of the translation by a subject matter expert (HCP) for each language?
Mandatory documents for SaMD to develop QMS
I have a question for you, and want to ask for your opinion.
We are an AI software team in a *** hospital. Our product is similar to ***. Our pneumothorax algorithm could automatically identifies findings suggestive of Pneumothorax based on chest X-ray scans and outputs an alert.
Because this product is a pure software, i.e. SaMD(Software and medical device), we do not manufacture physical medical equipment and don't have some activities. For example, there is no sterilization activity in our production processes.
I would like to know what documents are mandatory for a SaMD to develop a QMS?
Looking forward to hearing from you
Ang release of Product
Which document in the ISO 13485 toolkit dictate release of product and who is responsible for releaseing? Cant seem to find it
Relevant documents for software medical device
I think I know the answer to this question but I want to make sure. Are below documents relevant for a medical device that is a software or may I exclude them:
Appendix 4 – Request and Order for Purchasing
Appendix 1 – Product Specification
Procedure for Production and Service Provision
Appendix 4 – Notification to a Customer about Changes on Property
Procedure for EtO Sterilization
Procedure for Steam Sterilization
Procedure for Dry Heat Sterilization
Procedure for Ionizing Radiation Sterilization
Procedure for Filtration Sterilization
Appendix 1 – Record for Sterilization
Appendix 1 – Record for Temperature and Humidity Control
Adding these documents too (which are marked as mandatory but they don't relate to an app?):
Appendix 6 – Record of Medical Device Installation
Appendix 7 – Record of Servicing Activities
Receiving CE Mark
I consult a German company name ***. This company develop, manufacture dental implants and need the CE Mark soon in order to sell these items in Europe. We need to find a NB to perform an audit soon, and we can send the Technical File of the products to promote this process.
We can be audited to ISO 13485-16 or ISO 9001-15 what is the best to achieve the CE Mask soon.
How you can help us?
