ISO 13485:2016 Supplier Controls—Best Practices that Make Sustainable Change
The changes to ISO 13485:2016 have placed additional emphasis on Supplier Controls. As more companies outsource more of their processes or become virtual, the expectation are controls are implemented. What are the big problems found during the ISO audits? What are the best practices?
During this presentation, we will review the ISO Requirements and some of the best practices that are being used in industry. In addition, we will cover the use of proactive tools such as The Total Risk Factor™ and Total Cost of Ownership.
