The latest revision to ISO 13485 was released last February, replacing the previous 2003 version. Current ISO 13485:2003 certificates will EXPIRE on February 28, 2019.
For the next three years until February 28, 2019, both ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 13485:2016 standards will be valid. This 3-year window will allow organizations the necessary time to transition their systems to the new standard. Before expiration of 9001:2008, separate certificates will be issued to clients who conform to the ISO 13485:2003 standard.
After February 28, 2019, any existing certificates issued to ISO 13485:2003 will not be valid. On September 15, 2018, all separate ISO 9001:2008 certificates will become obsolete.
