Essential knowledge for medical device manufacturers

Delivered by the experienced team of quality and GMP compliance consultants from SeerPharma, this course is intended for Victorian medical device, medtech and healthtech organisations planning to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements of ISO 13485.


Your organisation may be involved in one or more medical device life-cycle stages such as design and development, production, storage and distribution, installation, servicing or associated activities (e.g. technical support). ISO 13485 can also be used by suppliers that provide products and/or services to organisations working in these stages.

Participants will gain knowledge and learn process steps to facilitate the implementation of an effective QMS aligned with or certified to ISO 13485:2016.

Applying ISO 13485 helps ensure that businesses deliver consistent good-quality products and services, ultimately improving customer satisfaction and contributing to commercial success.
