ISO 13485 Overview
What is ISO 13485?
ISO 13485:2016, the latest version of the ISO 13485 standard, is an internationally-recognized standard that sets out the requirement for a Medical Device Management System (MDMS).
It was initially published in 1996 as ISO 13485:1996 and revised in 2003. Associated standards since replaced by ISO 13485 include ISO 13488, EN 46001 and EN 46002. The current standard has been adopted by the EU as a harmonized standard with the title EN ISO 13485:2016.
EN ISO 13485:2016 is identical with ISO 13485:2016, sometimes referred to as the international version, except for the addition of 3 Annexes related to EU Directives. Do note that these Annexes are now out-of-date as they do not correspond with the current EU Medical Device Regulations (EU Regulation 2017/725 for medical devices and EU Regulation 2017/726 for in-vitro medical devices).
What is ISO 13485 Training?
ISO 13485 involves training programs designed to equip auditors, lead implementers, quality managers, and other management system professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to develop, implement, maintain, or audit Medical Device Management Systems and ensure their compliance with the requirements of ISO 13485.
Is this training mandatory?
Yes and No.
Management Representative or other professionals with day-to-day responsibility in maintaining an MDMS are not required to undergo ISO 13485 training. It is instead implied as already part of developing competence. It is not a specific stand-alone requirement.
That said, ISO 13485 training is strongly recommended as effective internal audits are essential to doing a professional job in maintaining your Medical Device Management System and preparing it for Certification Body audits.

Satisfied Customers Say:
- There were a few minor issues with course content integration with course software, however, Customer Service through the Support Ticket was quick to respond and address issues. The ability to learn and gain qualifications through an online platform such as deGRANDSON’s offer is an extremely flexible option. I would commend this learning option and the use of Safari iOS which works consistently with the learning platform. The Support Team are very efficient and quickly resolves any issues that might be encountered, many thanks.
This is an excellent course. The content in the 3 modules was so beneficial and helped me to grasp details that I had previously struggled with. It was evident that the content was factual and from the real world in its tips for application. The answers and direction provided in the FAQ’s was excellent and very helpful. Any query I had was answered promptly. I honestly don’t know what you could do better. Thank you for all your help and guidance.
Course states 24 hours, I would say it took double that time to complete. Had some technical difficulties but Ultan king in support has been very helpful in resolving all issues.
Have only completed the first part of the course, enjoying it immensely, so far. the content is thorough and clearly explained. I only have one small observation – that it may be better using a real person, or even person(s) to present rather than a computer generated voice which can be a little wearing over time.

I’m extremely pleased with my ISO 45001 Lead Auditor course from deGrandson that I started in February 2021. I work for Amazon as a Construction Manager constructing fulfilment centers in the UK, EU and worldwide. The course material is excellent, the online learning system is very easy to use and the course is very well structured. I highly recommend this course by deGrandson. Dr John FitzGerald is an expert in this subject area and it shows. You will be pleased that you also chose to study with deGrandson.
These are very detailed courses and they work very well for us.
On-line study at my own pace is most suitable learning media to me. The course is timely with the latest 2019 edition of the Standard coupled with value for money package.
