ISO 13485 provides requirements for a quality management system for the design and manufacture of medical devices. Prior to the recent acquisition, the Erie facility
complied with the earlier version of the standard. Following a comprehensive update to the quality system, the facility achieved compliance with the more rigorous ISO 13485:2016. This achievement confirms Cosmed Group’s forward thinking approach to quality system management and our efforts toward continuous improvement.
The standard providing for the development, validation and routine control of a sterilization process for medical devices, EN ISO 11135:2014, provides comprehensive requirements for contract sterilization facilities. The Certificate of Registration includes an endorsement of the facility’s compliance with the provisions of this important standard.
