Background on ISO 13485
ISO 13485:2003 (Medical devices - Quality management systems - Requirements for regulatory purposes) is essentially ISO 9001 adapted to meet the requirements of the medical device industry and it addresses most FDA requirements (21CFR820). The main difference between ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 is that ISO 13485 is more focused towards ensuring medical device safety and efficacy rather than enhancing customer satisfaction and continual improvement.
