  1. When we think of ISO 13485 certificate we mainly associate it with Medical Device manufacturers. But this can be also associated with other Medical Device Economic Operators. In this episode, Cristina Miroescu (Compliance Director at Sofmedica) will explain to us why Sofmedica decided to be ISO 13485 certified. You'll hear about their journey with the Plus and Minus. We are sure this may help you understand the process of certification if you are an importer or distributor. Who is Cristina Miroescu? Cristina joined SofMedica in 2000 as the first regulatory person preparing files for medicinal product and medical devices registration. Later on, as Regulatory Manager her role was to integrate the legal provisions and regulations into the company’s business strategy.
