Perhaps more than any other type of manufactured product, the quality of medical devices has a direct impact on their effectiveness as well as the safety of patients, users, and where appropriate other persons. For these reasons, most national regulatory schemes require manufacturers and suppliers of medical devices to establish an internal quality management system that has been independently audited and verified. Medical devices manufactured or supplied by organizations without a verified quality management system are routinely denied legal entry into major markets, usually resulting in extended delays in gaining access and lost revenue opportunities.
