USA: Quality System Regulation (QSR)

In USA all companies in the Medical Device industry are regulated to fulfill 21CFR820. On February 22, 2022, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a proposed rule to amend the current QSR regulation to harmonize with ISO 13485: 2016. The intent of the proposed rule is to align FDA’s regulatory framework with that used by other global regulatory authorities, promote consistency in the regulation of medical devices, and provide timelier introduction of safe, effective, high-quality devices to market. The proposition has not yet been effective. 

Key2Compliance supports you to create or update your QMS to fulfill the requirements on the USA market.
