Our global team has experience developing and optimizing quality systems that comply with ISO 13485:2016, FDA QSR, EU MDR, EU IVDR, MDSAP, and more. With certified and seasoned auditors on staff to provide on-site and remote audits, our team can identify and correct potential compliance issues before you get audited.

There is no one-size-fits-all quality solution for medical devices and IVDs. Our dedicated team will work with you to develop practical, right-sized policies and procedures for your team to follow. As an extension of your business, we develop your quality systems as if they are our own.

Whether your procedures are too cumbersome to follow or you just need to streamline your process, RQM+ is here with solutions. We’ll identify areas for improvement, map out effective processes and procedures to ensure compliance, and provide the necessary resources for implementation and training.

When an external audit results in nonconformities or a warning letter, you do not always have the internal resources to quickly and effectively respond. Our seasoned team of experts will support you with strategy, negotiation tactics, and leadership of remediation efforts.

The ever-changing regulatory landscape can leave manufacturers with many questions on interpretation and industry calibration. Our seasoned experts will conduct a gap assessment of the current state of your systems to determine the areas requiring compliance to the new regulations. With our unrivaled collective knowledge, RQM+ brings answers and best practice solutions.

Corrective and Preventive Action

Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) is a quality management system requirement, but it’s not uncommon for manufacturers to fall behind in handling CAPAs or for their CAPA system to be ineffective. A CAPA doesn't have to inspire dread; if done right, it's a great process for improving your business. Our team creates a better CAPA process for you, and we manage your CAPAs so you meet your plans and schedules.

FAQs About Quality Management Systems

Why should I build a quality system backwards?

Most companies try to build a smooth running process and then add record keeping at the end. This is why everyone thinks quality adds cost. You should make a list of required records at the start, then build your systems to create them. Remember, when you go to defend your QMS, the only thing you have are those records, so they need to be good.
