It also reflects changes related to the increased regulatory requirements for organizations in the supply chain.It is a major update from the 2003 standard, and is designed to respond to latest quality management system practices, including changes in technology and regulatory requirements and expectations. 

Companies have until March 1, 2019 to update their quality management systems to the ISO 13485:2016 standard.

This certification is part of a continued effort to upgrade LaVezzi’s Quality Management Systems and better positions the company to serve its customer base going forward, according to the company.

In April, LaVezzi was acquired by MW Industries and is now part of the MW Medical Solutions brand.
