PCS+ Quality Management System
As a leading medical device design firm, Product Creation Studio adopted ISO 13485:2016 Certification to underscore our commitment to continuous improvement and excellence in product development for the healthcare industry.
Our quality system also benefits our work on consumer products and industrial equipment.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops and publishes standards for quality management systems.
ISO 13485 represents the requirements for a comprehensive quality management system for the design and manufacture of medical devices. The latest update to the standard was released in 2016 and is intended for use by companies involved with the design and production of medical devices. Product Creation Studio has named our quality system PCS+.
ISO standards ensure that products are safe, reliable and of good quality. An ISO quality system provides the highest standard of design by assuring every aspect of product design is addressed.
International standards represent a massive consensus on organizational quality. The FDA, EU and Health Canada all require medical device development be managed by an ISO 13485 quality system to assure devices meet patient and regulatory requirements.
This certification is a statement to the world that Product Creation Studio is committed to quality, as well as a strategic tool to help reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors, while increasing productivity.
