Learn the essentials of the new edition of the standard, how it will affect your medical device company, and how the new version of 13485 differs from previous versions.
Walt explains how the ISO 13485 standard is changing and when the new standard will take effect. He illustrates new concepts and elements of ISO 13485:2016, including its emphasis on risk and opportunity orientations; a new convention for high-level systems (HSL); and how the new standard will be used in the full life cycle of the device.
