ISO-13485:2016 is an internationally recognized medical device quality system standard that ensures customer and regulatory requirements are consistently met throughout the lifecycle of a medical device product. Under the MDSAP program, ActiGraph’s quality management system will undergo a single yearly audit by a certified auditing organization that includes the requirements of ISO 13485:2016, as well as applicable requirements of regulatory authorities participating in the program. Among the numerous benefits of the MDSAP program are greater global alignment of regulatory approaches and technical requirements based on international standards and best practices.
