ISO 13485:2003
This medical devices standard is not a product standard, but a process standard based on ISO 9001. It is organized in the same way, uses the same numbering and most of the requirements are taken directly from ISO 9001. However, since ISO 13485 is about medical devices there are requirements specific to this industry.

ISO 22000:2005
Food safety management systems – Requirements for any organization in the food chain. Food safety is related to the presence of food-borne hazards in food at the point of consumption.

Service providers are also included.

This standard specifies the requirements for a food safety management system that combines the following generally recognized key elements to ensure food safety along the food chain, up to the point of final consumption:

  • Integrated communication;
  • System management;
  • Prerequisite programmes;
  • HACCP principles.

Areas impacting on safety and reliability would be configuration management, design, purchasing, product realisation and product monitoring and measurement.

OHSAS 18001:2007
This Health and Safety Management standard has been developed for international use and is based on the ISO 9001 standard. It enables an organization to control its health and safety risks and improve its performance. An effective H & S management system reduces the risk to employees and other interested parties and aids compliance with legislation. It provides a recognised way of telling interested parties that health and safety holds priority status within an organization. To assist in the understanding and implementation of this standard OHSAS 18002 provides guidance.

ISO/IEC 27001:2005
Information technology — Security techniques — Information security management systems — Requirements. This International Standard is aligned with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 in order to support consistent and integrated implementation and operation with related management standards. One suitably designed management system can thus satisfy the requirements of all these standards.

ISO 15189:2007
Medical laboratories — Particular requirements for quality and competence
This standard based upon ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 9001, provides requirements for competence and quality that are particular to medical laboratories. It is acknowledged that a country could have its own specific regulations or requirements applicable to some or all its professional personnel and their activities and responsibilities in this domain.

Medical laboratory services are essential to patient care and therefore have to be available to meet the needs of all patients and the clinical personnel responsible for the care of those patients. Such services include arrangements for requisition, patient preparation, patient identification, collection of samples, transportation, storage, processing and examination of clinical samples, together with subsequent validation, interpretation, reporting and advice, in addition to the considerations of safety and ethics in medical laboratory work.

Whenever allowed by national regulations, it is desirable that medical laboratory services include the examination of patients in consultation cases, and that those services actively participate in the prevention of disease in addition to diagnosis and patient management. Each laboratory ought also to provide suitable educational and scientific opportunities for professional staff working with it.

While the ISO 15189 standard is intended for use throughout the currently recognised disciplines of medical laboratory services, those working in other services and disciplines could also find it useful and appropriate. In addition, bodies engaged in the recognition of the competence of medical laboratories will be able to use the ISO 15189 standard as the basis for their activities.

Demonstrated conformity to the ISO 15189 standard does not imply conformity of the quality management system within which the laboratory operates to all the requirements of ISO 9001. The ISO 15189 standard is not intended to be used for the purposes of certification.

The extent of application of these requirements depends on the organization’s operating environment and complexity.

It is not the intent of this British Standard to imply uniformity in the structure of a BCMS but for an organization to design a BCMS that is appropriate to its needs and that meets its stakeholders’ requirements. These needs are shaped by regulatory, customer and business requirements, the products and services, the processes employed, the size and structure of the organization and the requirements of its stakeholders.

This British Standard can be used by internal and external parties, including certification bodies, to assess an organization’s ability to meet its own business continuity needs, as well as any customer, legal or regulatory needs.
