The ISO 13485 Change was made in 2016 when the Standard was updated. There are now some differences in the approach for implementation of this Standard. ISO 13485 Medical Device Standard has become an exception. In particular there are some significant departures from ISO 9001.
In a modern social and business context, managing the environmental impact of an organisation makes sense. Environmental issues can have a big cost for most organisations, more so the bigger the business. As a result, the modern business needs to manage its impact, public perception that goes with it and normal business processes. Particularly, those that impact the environment. The ISO 14001 Standard puts all this in context and suggests a way forward.

API Management Standard Certification appears to be causing some confusion. Some companies appear to be uncertain about which of API Q1 or API Q2 Management Standards to work toward. In particular should they be assessed to Q1 or Q2? In this post we clarify the issue.
The importance of a quality standard goes beyond just achieving the certification. The API Q1 is a Quality Management Standard. Consequently, successful certification should also improve the standard of your management system within your business. CHARTER4 has pioneered an approach which helps organisations achieve API Q1 certification and improve their business.
