  • Članak 10. MDR-a

    Zahvaljujem na zanimljivom predavanju. Ako nije problem, zanima me tumačim li dobro Članak 10. MDR-a kad je u pitanju QMS i IMD. Razumijem li dobro da proizvođač ispitivanog MD, koji tek razvija svoj prvi proizvod i nema zaposlenike već samo otvorenu firmu s upravom, nije dužan uspostaviti QMS dok proizvod nije u fazi pripreme za certifikaciju? Jasno mi je da sustav ne može funkcionirati bez zaposlenika, no on se ipak može smatrati proizvođačem IMD-a iako ima podugovorenu proizvodnju istog kod certificiranog proizvođača. Da li dobro tumačim? Puno hvala i lijep pozdrav,

    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?

  • 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?
