ISO 13485:2016 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. Such organizations can be involved in one or more stages of the life-cycle, including design and development, production, storage and distribution, installation, or servicing of a medical device and design and development or provision of associated activities (e.g. technical support). ISO 13485:2016 can also be used by suppliers or external parties that provide product, including quality management system-related services to such organizations.
Requirements of ISO 13485:2016 are applicable to organizations regardless of their size and regardless of their type except where explicitly stated. Wherever requirements are specified as applying to medical devices, the requirements apply equally to associated services as supplied by the organization.
The processes required by ISO 13485:2016 that are applicable to the organization, but are not performed by the organization, are the responsibility of the organization and are accounted for in the organization's quality management system by monitoring, maintaining, and controlling the processes.
If applicable regulatory requirements permit exclusions of design and development controls, this can be used as a justification for their exclusion from the quality management system. These regulatory requirements can provide alternative approaches that are to be addressed in the quality management system. It is the responsibility of the organization to ensure that claims of conformity to ISO 13485:2016 reflect any exclusion of design and development controls.
If any requirement in Clauses 6, 7 or 8 of ISO 13485:2016 is not applicable due to the activities undertaken by the organization or the nature of the medical device for which the quality management system is applied, the organization does not need to include such a requirement in its quality management system.

This Technical Report lists collective terms and codes for groups of medical devices having common features. The listing is structured so that the terms can be used for the purposes required in regulatory reporting and for communication relevant to the application of the medical device regulation.
For certain purposes in the application of the Medical Devices Directives, there is an urgent need for the development of a list of collective terms based on the identified principles to be used, for examples, as follows:
-   to illustrate the scope of certificates issued by Notified Bodies when assessing which groups, families or types of medical devices are covered within a manufacturer's quality system,
-   to be used to identify the range of skills and general technological abilities for which a Notified Body has been approved, and is so appointed by the relevant Competent Authority,
-   for the exchanges of information between Competent Authorities when general information on individual manufacturers capabilities is notified for inclusion in the European Database for Medical Devices (EUDAMED).
For the purpose of developing sets of collective terms, Accessories to medical devices are integrated de facto in the corresponding medical device collective term.

Luer connectors are used in medical devices with a wide range of functions, raising the possibility of accidental cross connection between devices. We assessed the hazards arising from accidental misconnection, and reviewed adverse incidents known to have involved Luer connectors.
We considered three possible strategies for reducing the risk of misconnection being made:
1)   The use of different male/female sequences for different applications.
2)   The use of colour coding.
3)   The restriction of the applications for which the use of Luer connectors is
permitted.
Only the last of these offered real benefits.

ISO 13485:2003 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer requirements and regulatory requirements applicable to medical devices and related services.
The primary objective of ISO 13485:2003 is to facilitate harmonized medical device regulatory requirements for quality management systems. As a result, it includes some particular requirements for medical devices and excludes some of the requirements of ISO 9001 that are not appropriate as regulatory requirements. Because of these exclusions, organizations whose quality management systems conform to this International Standard cannot claim conformity to ISO 9001 unless their quality management systems conform to all the requirements of ISO 9001.
All requirements of ISO 13485:2003 are specific to organizations providing medical devices, regardless of the type or size of the organization.
If regulatory requirements permit exclusions of design and development controls, this can be used as a justification for their exclusion from the quality management system. These regulations can provide alternative arrangements that are to be addressed in the quality management system. It is the responsibility of the organization to ensure that claims of conformity with ISO 13485:2003 reflect exclusion of design and development controls.
If any requirement(s) in Clause 7 of ISO 13485:2003 is(are) not applicable due to the nature of the medical device(s) for which the quality management system is applied, the organization does not need to include such a requirement(s) in its quality management system.
The processes required by ISO 13485:2003, which are applicable to the medical device(s), but which are not performed by the organization, are the responsibility of the organization and are accounted for in the organization's quality management system.

This technical report provides recommendations for procedures that should be followed to establish, as far as possible, a traceability route for medical devices which have been placed on the market.
It is understood that the procedures to be described in this report will be more detailed in relation to high-risk devices when the need has been identified to trace devices as far as the actual patient.
For lower risk devices this report provides recommendations for elements of procedures to be transmitted by manufacturers to the members of a distribution chain, to achieve an appropriate level of traceability, perhaps of batches of products in some cases, sufficient to withdraw or inform purchasers or users of information regarding such identified products.

This European Standard specifies requirements for information to be supplied by a manufacturer for medical devices regulated by Council Directive 90/385/EEC relating to active implantable medical devices and Council Directive 93/42/EEC concerning medical devices. It does not specify the language to be used for such information, nor does it specify the means by which the information is to be supplied. It is also intended to complement the specific requirements of the cited EU Directives on medical devices by providing guidance on means by which certain requirements can be met. If a manufacturer follows these means, they will provide a presumption of conformity with the relevant Essential Requirements regarding information to be supplied.
This standard does not cover requirements for provision of information for in vitro diagnostic medical devices, which are covered by other labelling standards (see Bibliography).
NOTE   When national transpositions of the Directives specify the means by which information shall be supplied, this standard does not provide derogation from these requirements for that country.

20050816  Previously registered under ref ISO 14971-1 - changed to ISO 14971 at ISO request (see below explanation from T. Hancox) "The information is : two pieces of one future Standard are being developed separately, but the intention is that they will be regarded as a single Standard + annex. Annex B is being developed by TC 212, at the request of TC 210. The revision of the existing 14971: 2000 is at stage 0 because the published document is still valid. When the Annex is nearer publication, it is intended that we take the decision how much revision might be necessary or indeed whether the Annex should be published as an Amendment to a still-valid (i.e. unchanged) 2000 publication."
