New Medilink member Reliance Precision, a Huddersfield-based specialist engineering company, have secured the ISO 13485 certification.
With over 60 years’ experience in providing custom-built precision instrumentation, the certification will enable them to further develop their company in the medical and life sciences sector.
The certification highlights an internationally agreed standard, specific to the medical devices industry, and sets out requirements for a quality management system that establishes and maintains the effectiveness of an organisation’s processes.
This achievement reflects their strong commitment to improvement and giving customers confidence in their ability to providing safe and efficient products.
Stephen Guy, Reliance’s Life Sciences Business Manager, says: “ISO 13485 is desirable for any business wanting to supply products into the life sciences industry. Whilst we hope the certification will enable us to make further in-roads within the market, we also recognise there is a responsibility associated with holding the standard.
“The rigorous QMS is designed to ensure we meet, or indeed exceed, requirements, providing our customers with the reassurance we can consistently deliver quality and reliability.”
Reliance’s Business Manager for the Scientific, Analytical & Medical sectors, Jerry Coffey, added: “As a business that supplies both bespoke engineered components and standard catalogue products that are often for sub-assembly, ISO 13485 will reinforce confidence in Reliance’s customers that the parts we supply comply with all the necessary regulatory and legal requirements, reducing the risk to their business.”
