Audit Procedure for ISO 13485 Certification in Saudi Arabia Through IAS
The certification process has 2 auditing stages, which include:
- Stage 1 Audit (Preliminary audit) – The first stage of the Certification Audit is to see whether a firm is prepared to continue with Stage 2. Our auditor will gain an understanding of the company’s business activities, internal controls, and financial position during this period. Our auditors will evaluate and analyze all ISO 13485 documentation, as well as develop an audit plan based on their findings.
- Stage 2 Audit (Certification Audit) – During this phase, the company’s entire management system is reviewed and audited to ensure that it fulfills ISO 13485 requirements. The time it takes a firm to complete an audit in the second stage is determined by a number of factors, including its size, the number of branches it has, and the services it offers.
After successful completion of both audits, an ISO 13485 certificate will be granted.
