Although complex and lengthy, the process of certification for the ISO 13485 can be easily mastered using the simple method outlined in ISO 13485: A Complete Guide to Quality Management in the Medical Device Industry. Written by an experienced industry professional, this practical book provides a complete guide to the ISO 13485 Standard certification for medical device manufacturing.

You can use the book as a consulting session — read it, explore it ,extract ideas — and draw on the information and knowledge that suits you and your organization, and then apply it effectively to your quality management system and processes.
