ISO 13485 + Canada Checklist

Prior to marketing your medical device in Canada, you must comply with the QMS requirements of the Canadian Medical Devices Regulations (CMDR) and obtain the required level of approval from Health Canada.

Our ISO 13485:2016 (+Canada) checklist covers all requirements of the standard, as well as the Canadian Medical Device Regulations (CMDR) that apply to all medical devices. This checklist covers medical devices from Class I to Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMD). The checklist is in a ready-to-report format with columns for the questions to ask, the relevant clause, the evidence reviewed, and any finding arising from the checklist item.

Our audit checklists are designed for medical device companies who believe that:

– someone within their company can conduct internal audits instead of using 3rd-party internal-auditors

– they have been issued non-conformances from their latest external audit because their internal audit is not sufficiently robust or simply needs improvement

– they can identify gaps by following a systematic checklist rather than a “let’s see what we find” approach.

Our Audit Checklists are strategically put together by experienced medical-device auditors, checked, re-checked, and used several times to ensure coverage so you can identify underlying issues.

You’ll be glad to know that this is the same checklist that our auditors use to make sure you’re ‘Audit Ready’, and you CAN SHOW IT. Whether or not you ask us to audit your QMS, you will have the same checklist.

As always, our checklist are guaranteed to also serve as the most practical and to-the-point learning material for medical device quality and regulatory affairs personnel.

In all AuditAct checklists, we:

– How: tell you how to implement
