  • Mandatory information in Conformity Declaration for Medical Device Class I

    Hello, I have a Conformity Declaration from a supplier for MD Class I non-sterile, under MDR 2017/745, that identifies the product with "name", "model" (uses the references of the products), "GMDN" and "Classification" (Class I). There is already a text field for "Basic UDI-DI", but is still empty. Recently I asked for a new product class I with a new reference, produced only for us. I asked for an update of the Conformity Declaration and the supplier told me the one I have is enough for the new reference because it is under the same "Name" and "GMDN". Is that correct? Doesn't the  MDR oblige to an "unambiguous reference allowing identification and traceability of the device", for this one in particular? Shouldn't the supplier add the new "Model"? Additionally, when will the Basic UDI-DI be mandatory in these declarations? Thank you, Isabel Sottomayor
  • ISO 13485 Internal Auditor

    As I work through the course material it is becoming increasingly clear that as a small company like mine-my ability to act as an internal auditor may not be feasible as I cannot audit the processes I am involved in.  I am also Purchaser and QMS Manager.
    It would not be possible for another member of my team to audit purchasing processes as they are not qualified.  We received a finding on a past audit as our Internal Audit was deemed unqualified.
    Please advise how other small companies navigate this situation.

  • Do we need ISO 13485?

    We are a manufacturer of cleaning chemicals, some of which are used in the medical industry, for cleaning medical devices, apparatus, equipment, etc.

    We have always been led to believe that we needed to adhere to ISO 13485 however, upon reading the document, I am not sure that it applies to us. Can your expert provide further clarification please?

  • Labeling of medical device accessories

    I am looking for information on labeling of medical device accessories. Specifically, we have a handpiece to improve delivery of laser energy from the fiber to the patient tissue. The notified body (under MDD) advised us to put the same laser safety labels on the handpiece (laser class, etc) as we already have on the laser itself. I cannot find any advise like this in the standards (IEC60601-1, IEC60601-2-22, IEC60825-1)

  • Questions regarding Technical files 13485/MDR

    1: Do we need a Technical File for outsourced products that are manufactured elsewhere?

    2: Do we need a Technical File for products that we relabel?

    3: Do we need a Technical File for products that we do not adapt or manufacture ourselves but that we buy and resell (as part of one of our products)?

  • Clause 8.2.6 ISO 13485

    Hello From ISO 13485 with MDR, in 11 Production and Service Provision, is there enough in this document to cover off 8.2.6. Document 11 does not mention 8.2.6 as a reference document.  But I do not see anywhere else that does either. thanks
  • Using ISO 9001 documents for ISO 13485

    I am currently working through the ISO 13485 documentation, and have noticed that some of the documentation is similar to the ISO 9001 documentation.  If applicable, could I use some of the templates / documents that we have for ISO 9001 for ISO 13485?
  • MDR compliance for distributors

    Hello Could someone advise me as a distributor do I need my management system to be MDR compliant? I make sure all of my suppliers are MDR compliant, but I don't know if we also need to have that in our system. I did purchase the 13485 + MDR tool kit. I just read conflicting information on various sites. thanks
