Quality Management Systems – ISO 13485:2003

This introductory course covers the basic requirements of ISO 13485 and its implications within a medical device manufacturing company.

As the ISO Standard 13485-2003 Medical Devices states;

“All requirements of this International Standard are specific to organizations providing medical devices, regardless of the type or size of the organization.”

Course Duration & Location

3-5 days, on your site or at one of our training centers.

CiPharma’s training courses can be delivered anywhere in the world. If your site is not in a city we have an office in then we ask you to cover the travel costs from our nearest office. You’ll save the costs associated with your staff travelling to be trained, so it becomes cost effective if you have several people needing training.
