So to make a long story short, we are basically promised more work if we have ISO 13485 on our belt. In reading the standard I find that it really doesn’t apply to us. We do not do any sterilization, assembly, servicing, design, installation, particular requirements of implantable devices, CFR regulations, special labeling and traceability for medical devices. We do have a Clean Room where we mold medical products that has compliant procedures, risk assessments and so forth.
XYZ is a small rubber molding manufacturer (33 people) certified to ISO9001:2015 with the exclusion of Design. We manufacture for the Government, Aerospace, Military, Commercial and Medical fields. We manufacture small o-rings and core seals to medical manufacturer that typically ships in bulk with no major requirements such as CFA, FDA, labeling, etc.
So my question, is it a norm for a manufacturer to be ISO 9001 certified with an emphasis on ISO 13485? Getting ISO 13485 with so many exclusions or at least half of the standard doesn’t seem right.

Qualification procedures need to be developed and implemented for a test or a certain manufacturing procedure. A test, OJT or validation should be included. However, who can be the "first" qualified person? For the validation of the qualification, there needs to be a person to compare. We are in the process of first developing the qualification procedure. Do we need to establish a procedure that specifies the first person to be qualified? Or can anyone or someone who had been doing the job become a first qualified person?
