According to EU Regulation (EC) 2017/745 (MDR) and US 21 CFR 820 covering medical devices, manufacturers must demonstrate that the selected critical suppliers, contractors, and consultants meet all specified requirements, including quality requirements. These regulations hold manufacturers fully responsible for all outsourced processes. Fulfilling this obligation requires an understanding of and the ability to control every aspect of the supply chain, including the materials used, the impact manufacturing processes have on final products, and whether any impurities found in the materials used can affect end users. The state-of-the-art for medical devices in the EU, and soon also in the US, is to adhere to the ISO 13485:2016 quality management systems standard.
