Understanding ISO 13485:2016 and the Medical Device Single Audit Programme

4-weeks | 2 hours per week

3 August - 11 September 2020

Online Academy

The publication of ISO 13485:2016 marked a turning point in Quality Management Systems for those involved in the life-cycles of medical devices in the EU. The deadline for compliance was March 2019, however in addition to this, the FDA have recently announced their plans to harmonise their Quality System regulations under the Medical Device Single Audit Programme (MDSAP) with ISO 13485:2016, so organisations under the FDA meet both domestic and international requirements.

This essential 7 module course will allow you to understand the increased requirements around risk management under the 2016 revision and to familiarise yourself completely with ISO 13485:2016. In addition, delegates will gain practical knowledge and key skills in conducting audits under ISO 13485 in conjunction with the most recent MDSAP auditing model, complemented with real-life case studies.

If you would like to start the course sooner than advertised simply get in contact with our training consultants by emailing and we will arrange this for you as soon as possible.
