The gap analysis checklist is a very useful tool in evaluating your Quality Management System (QMS) as you transition from ISO 9001:2015 to include ISO 13485:2016. Requirements are expressed as questions for the user (auditor / assessor) to use in determining your QMS capabilities.
While the versions of the standards do not line up when comparing the requirements:
- The right-hand column in green shade is intended to provide reference / comparison / similarities to the ISO 13485:2016 requirements, and to identify and locate where in the former requirements are relevant.
- In the green shaded right-hand column, the ISO 13485:2016 requirements over ISO 9001:2015 are highlighted in yellow.
- The intent of the main clauses of the ISO 9001:2015 standard is shown in bold blue font.
