Validation in medical technology: it can not be done without

Are you and your company prepared for the new ISO 13485: 2016? The transition period for the old ISO 31 ends on March 2019, 13485.

This affects all companies that produce, store, install and provide medical device products within the scope of this standard. In addition, the ISO 13485: 2016 is also mandatory for service providers and suppliers.

One of the most important innovations: These companies then have to validate computer-aided systems that they use for their own process control. This includes the ERP software. Validated is not the software itself, but the way the software is used.

We accompany you in the validation of your company and your processes according to ISO 13485: 2016 and other national and international standards.


Important standards and regulations to which we advise you:

  • ISO 13485: 2016
  • ISO TR 800002 2
  • MDR Television
  • GAMP 5

The new ISO 13485: 2016 entered into force on April 1, 2019.
