Resolution RDC 665/2022 defines the Brazilian Quality Management System (QMS) requirements that must be followed regarding methods, controls and other processes related to the design, purchase and manufacture of Medical Devices and IVDs.

Among the most important are: the obligation to establish responsibilities, authorities and interrelation of all personnel managing and verifying the Quality Management System in the company; the necessity to establish the proof that the Suppliers have received the specifications for goods and supplied services; and the extension to the Importers of label and IFU control.
