ISO 13485 certification is a critical quality standard for medical device manufacturing. A manufacturer certified by this standard provides medical device components and products that meet all proper international compliance requirements and end-user needs. Marlin Steel has earned ISO 13485 certification as of April 2024 so that customers can be confident in our wire and sheet metal fabrication products for medical device applications. Learn more about ISO 13485 certification, its benefits for Marlin Steel and our customers, and our quality stainless steel wire and sheet metal medical devices.
ISO 13485 provides guidelines for an organization to design its quality management system regarding the manufacturing processes of its medical devices. Being certified by this standard ensures the manufacturer’s medical devices comply with regulations to deliver quality patient treatment. ISO 13485 is based on ISO 9001 quality management systems with provisions for medical devices, lending credibility to manufacturers and peace of mind for medical facilities, such as hospitals and clinics, that use medical devices.
ISO 13485 is internationally recognized and mandated in many countries. The U.S. FDA has proposed a regulation to harmonize ISO 13485:2016 and FDA 21 CFR 820. Marlin Steel is one of the few wire manufacturers that has ISO 13485 certification.
