Quality Management System (QMS):

  • Implement QMS: Establish a robust QMS that complies with ISO 13485 standards.

  • Document Control: Maintain accurate records of design history, risk assessments, and changes.

Design Controls and Documentation:

  • Design Inputs and Outputs: Clearly define design inputs (user needs, specifications) and design outputs (product specifications, labeling).

  • Design History File (DHF): Compile all design-related documents in the DHF.
