European foreword

This document (EN ISO 13485:2016/A11:2021) has been prepared by Technical Committee

CEN/CLC/TC 3 “Quality management and corresponding general aspects for medical devices” the

secretariat of which is held by NEN.

This document amends EN ISO 13485:2016, incorporating corrigenda March 2016, December 2016 and

2018, with a revised European Foreword and European Annexes ZA and ZB.

This Amendment to the European Standard EN ISO 13485:2016 has been prepared under a mandate

given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association, and supports

requirements of EU Regulation(s).

For relationship with EU Regulation(s), see informative Annex ZA, and ZB, which are an integral part of

this document.

Any feedback and questions on this document should be directed to the users’ national standards

body/national committee. A complete listing of these bodies can be found on the CEN websites.

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For undated

references, the edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) listed below applies. For

dated references, only the edition cited applies. However, for any use of this standard within the meaning

of Annex ZA or ZB, the user should always check that any referenced document has not been superseded

and that its relevant contents can still be considered the generally acknowledged state-of-art.

When an IEC or ISO standard is referred to in the ISO standard text, this should be understood as a

normative reference to the corresponding EN standard, if available, and otherwise to the dated version

of the ISO or IEC standard as listed below.

NOTE The way in which these referenced documents are cited in normative requirements determines the

extent (in whole or in part) to which they apply.

Annex ZA
(informative)
Relationship between this European standard and the requirements of
Regulation (EU) 2017/745 aimed to be covered

This European standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardisation request M/575 of

14.4.2021 to provide one voluntary means of conforming to the requirements of Regulation (EU)

2017/745 of 5 April 2017 concerning medical devices [OJ L 117].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Regulation, compliance

with the normative clauses of this standard given in Tables ZA.1, ZA.2 or ZA.3 confers, within the limits

of the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding requirements of that

Regulation, and associated EFTA regulations.
This Annex covers the relationship of this European standard with:
• the general obligations of the manufacturer in Article 10 (Table ZA.1); and,

• the quality management system requirements in the conformity assessment annexes (Annexes IX

and XI) (Table ZA.2 and ZA.3 respectively).

EN ISO 13485:2016 is an adoption of an international standard, ISO 13485:2016, which is intended to be

applicable in jurisdictions all over the world. Therefore, it is not the primary goal of ISO 13485:2016 to

cover exactly the European quality management system requirements. Consequently, for all of the quality

management system requirements, conformity is not entirely achieved by complying only with the

requirements specified in EN ISO 13485. Manufacturers and conformity assessment bodies will need to

integrate the quality management system requirements in the applicable European Regulation into the

processes provided by EN ISO 13485. In addition, the European Regulations require the incorporation of

certain processes in the quality management system, such as clinical evaluation, risk management, post-

market surveillance, and assignment of unique device identification. EN ISO 13485 requires the

integration of these processes into the quality management system in accordance with regulatory

requirements but does not explicitly include the details of the particular European Union regulatory

requirements within the standard. Furthermore, the definitions in applicable regulatory requirements

differ from nation to nation and region to region. As a result, the definitions in this document can differ

in wording from those in European Regulations. For use in support of European requirements, definitions

in the European regulations for medical devices take precedence.

In addition to requirements on the manufacturer’s quality management system, Article 10 and

Annexes IX and XI of the European Regulations include a description of the regulatory processes and

activities undertaken by the notified body, competent authority and European Commission, which are

outside of the scope of EN ISO 13485 and therefore not covered by the standard.

NOTE 1 Where a reference from a clause of this standard to the risk management process is made, the risk

management process needs to be in compliance with Regulation (EU) 2017/745. This means that risks have to be

‘reduced as far as possible’, ‘reduced to the lowest possible level’, ‘reduced as far as possible and appropriate’,

‘removed or reduced as far as possible’, ‘eliminated or reduced as far as possible’, ’removed or minimized as far as

possible’, or ‘minimized’, according to the wording of the corresponding General Safety and Performance

Requirement.

NOTE 2 The manufacturer’s policy for determining acceptable risk must be in compliance with General Safety

and Performance Requirements 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 of the Regulation.

NOTE 3 This Annex ZA is based on normative references according to the table of references in the European

Foreword, replacing the references in the core text.

NOTE 4 When a requirement does not appear in Tables ZA.1, ZA.2 or ZA.3 it means that it is not addressed by

this European Standard.

Annex ZA
(informative)
Relationship between this European Standard and the conformity
assessment requirements of EU Directive 90/385/EEC on active
implantable medical devices [OJ L 189] (as amended) aimed to be
covered

This European standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardisation request M/023 to

provide one voluntary means of conforming to essential requirements of Council Directive 90/385/EEC

of 20 June 1990 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to active implantable

medical devices [OJ L 189] (as amended).

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive, compliance

with the normative clauses of this standard given in Tables ZA.1 or ZA.2 confers, within the limits of the

scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding conformity assessment

requirements of that Directive and associated EFTA regulations.

The Conformity Assessment Annexes 2 and 5 of the Directive include description of the regulatory

process and activities undertaken by the Notified Body, which both are outside of the scope of this

European Standard and therefore not covered by this European Standard. Furthermore, the

requirements of the Directive refer to an application to a Notified Body, not to the requirement for a

quality system as such. Accordingly, coverage of legal requirements can only be presumed to the extent

listed in Tables ZA.1 and ZA.2 if an application to a Notified Body:
— contains the necessary quality system documentation;
— has been reviewed and approved by a Notified Body,

and the undertakings listed in the application are correctly executed by the manufacturer.

NOTE 1 Where a reference from a clause of this standard to the risk management process is made, the risk

management process needs to be in compliance with 90/385/EEC, as amended by 2007/47/EC. This means that

risks have to be reduced ‘as far as possible’, ‘to a minimum’, ‘to the lowest possible level’, ‘minimized’ or ‘removed’,

according to the wording of the corresponding essential requirement.

NOTE 2 The manufacturer’s policy for determining acceptable risk must be in compliance with essential

requirements 1, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 10of the Directive.

NOTE 3 This Annex ZA is based on normative references according to the table of references in the European

foreword, replacing the references in the core text.

NOTE 4 When a requirement does not appear in Tables ZA.1 or ZA.2, it means that it is not addressed by this

European Standard.

NOTE 5 This annex uses the term “quality system” as used in the Directive whereas this European Standard uses

the term “quality management system” in accordance with ISO terminology.

ZA.1 Relationship with Annex 2 of Directive 90/385/EEC (as amended)

Compliance with this European Standard does not provide presumption of conformity with all the

aspects of Annex 2, as outlined in Table ZA.1. Therefore, a manufacturer or a Notified Body has to take

additional provisions to ensure conformity, and claim or certify conformance, with Annex 2 of this

Directive. The legal requirements must be examined, applied and verified one by one and the solutions

adopted must become part of the quality system in the meaning of the Directive.

(informative)
Relationship between this European Standard and the conformity
assessment requirements of EU Directive 93/42/EEC on medical
devices [OJ L 169] (as amended) aimed to be covered

This European Standard has been prepared under a Commission's standardization request M/023 to

provide one voluntary means of conforming to essential requirements of Council Directive 93/42/EEC of

14 June 1993 concerning medical devices [OJ L 169 (as amended)].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive, compliance

with the normative clauses of this standard given in Tables ZB.1, ZB.2 or ZB.3 confers, within the limits

of the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding conformity assessment

requirements of that Directive and associated EFTA regulations.

The Conformity Assessment Annexes II, V and VI of the Directive include description of the regulatory

process and activities undertaken by the Notified Body, which both are outside of the scope of this

European Standard and therefore not covered by this European Standard. Furthermore, the

requirements of the Directive refer to an application to a Notified Body, not to the requirement for a

quality system as such. Accordingly, coverage of legal requirements can only be presumed to the extent

listed in Tables ZB.1, ZB.2 and ZB.3 if an application to a Notified Body:
— contains the necessary quality system documentation;
— has been reviewed and approved by a Notified Body,

and the undertakings listed in the application are correctly executed by the manufacturer.

NOTE 1 Where a reference from a clause of this standard to the risk management process is made, the risk

management process needs to be in compliance with 93/42/EEC, as amended by 2007/47/EC. This means that

risks have to be reduced ‘as far as possible’, ‘to a minimum’, ‘to the lowest possible level’, ‘minimized’ or ‘removed’,

according to the wording of the corresponding essential requirement.

NOTE 2 The manufacturer’s policy for determining acceptable risk must be in compliance with essential

requirements 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 of the Directive.

NOTE 3 This Annex ZB is based on normative references according to the table of references in the European

foreword, replacing the references in the core text.

NOTE 4 When a requirement does not appear in Tables ZB.1, ZB.2 or ZB.3 it means that it is not addressed by

this European Standard.

NOTE 5 This annex uses the term “quality system” as used in the Directive whereas this European Standard uses

the term “quality management system” in accordance with ISO terminology.
ZB.1 Relationship with Annex II of Directive 93/42/EEC (as amended)

Compliance with this European Standard does not provide a presumption of conformity with all the
