Want to Produce Safe Medical Devices? Invest in Your QMS.
The increasingly stringent requirements in the medical device industry (especially MDR 2017/745) are causing stomachaches to even the biggest players in MedTech. The high bureaucratic effort is time consuming, cost intensiv, and requires specific expertise.
MedTech requirements often leave room for interpretation and it is not always entirely clear how certain regulations are to be implemented. With unclear specifications and countless guidance papers with different interpretations, it is anything but easy to stay on top of things.
The consequences of incorrectly implemented regulations in many cases leads to a warning letter.
In worse cases, poor production processes and a weak Quality Management System (QMS) can lead to defective products on the market – the absolute worst case scenario for any medical device manufacturer.
Investing into your Quality Management System (QMS) should therefore have the highest priority – to minimize risks, establish safe, efficient processes and ultimately comply with regulations.
Quality Management Starts with Your Suppliers.
Quality Management does not start in your own company. It starts with your suppliers, at the very beginning of the supply chain.
Therefore, the MDR 2017/745 also requires your suppliers to comply with certain regulations (see Checklist for Supplier Documentation).
It is not enough to ask your suppliers to send over an ISO 13485 certificate and believe that they have a good QMS. Unfortunately, there are some charlatans out there who will send you a fake ISO 13485 certificate and disappear from the screen when quality issues appear. So, regular supplier audits are a must – to check if your suppliers practice what they preach.
Remember that the risk and responsibility of your final medical device is yours.
SIFo Medical supports you with these ever increasing challenges. Count on a reliable partner and hands-on support to fix quality issues, conduct supplier audits, source parts & components, improve your processes and ensure compliance with the latest medical device regulations and standards.

How can I book a consultation with SIFo Medical?Every cooperation starts with an online meeting. Before we start working together, it is vital to us to get to know you in person, and learn about your company, challenges and concerns. Also, we want to clarify all your questions personally. Head over to our calendar and sign up for your initial consultation: https://calendly.com/sifo_medical/initial-consultation-sifo-medical
How much is a QM Consultation?We are not offering standardized consulting packages. All of our consulting services start with an initial consultation to find out what the status quo is, and which results you expect. Based on the initial consultation, you will receive an individual project plan which will be charged according to the length and complexity of the project. For further information, please contact us directly at email@example.com. On a side note: The investment in QM consulting pays off very quickly. Most of our clients move things forward much faster during our cooperation because they benefit from proven best practices and hands-on support. Also, outside input is often worth its weight in gold when you can't see the forest for the trees. Not only do you save time and spare some nerves, but you can also save costs in the long run through fewer complaints, efficient workflows, and full compliance with regulations.
Which parts and components does SIFo Medical source?We source all kinds of parts and components intended to produce medical devices. You can be sure that the supplier fulfills all requirements as requested by the MDR 2017/745 and further critical regulatory requirements. To give a few examples: currently, we are actively sourcing cables, semiconductors, PCBA (Printed Circuited Board Assemblies), and all kinds of disposables.
Where does SIFo Medical source components & materials from?Currently, we are mainly sourcing in Asia. However, according to your requirements, we will be happy to find and audit suppliers in other regions as well.
How long does it take to source materials & components for the production of medical devices?This depends on the complexity of the components. For some customers we were able to source parts within a few days. For others, where the complexity of the product is higher, it might take up to several months. However, through our extensive network we are usually able to find suitable partners for you promptly.
Why should I source through SIFo Medical and not directly?This is an important question. You might think you can source materials cheaper when you buy directly from the supplier. In some cases, this might be right. However, in all our current cooperations, we found materials at more competitive prices than the customer's current suppliers (in some cases, even 70% cheaper – possible through already established business relationships). Also, you will not have to worry about compliance. We ensure suppliers comply with MDR 2017/745 and provide the relevant documentation (Process Validation, Test Method Validation, First Article Inspection, Audit Reports). Further, you have one reliable contact person (speaking German & English) who ensures your suppliers comply with regulations and conducts supplier audits. In many cases, a cooperation with SIFo proves to be more efficient, saves you time & cost, gives you more flexibility, and reduces your risk of non-compliance.
What is the process of a supplier audit?Our certified auditors conduct supplier audits acc. to ISO 13485. We will independently plan and implement the audit on-site at your supplier and provide you with the documented audit results.
