Sandvik secures ISO certification

Sandvik Medical Solutions’ European casting operations and European forging and finishing operations in Sheffield have been registered to ISO13485:2003 Quality Systems – Medical Devices following an audit by Lloyds’ Register Quality Assurance.

The registration covers both sites, which supply orthopaedic prostheses, surgical instrumentation and trauma components to a range of leading original equipment manufacturers across the globe.

Commenting on the registration, Ken Birdsong, president and managing director of Sandvik Medical Solutions, said: ‘The teams at both sites have worked hard to bring together two independent quality systems into a single, combined system, as well as implementing an Electronic Document Management System to control the authorisation and distribution of all Quality System documentation.

‘We’re pleased that all the hard work has been worthwhile and confident that our customers will benefit from our commitment to quality and consistency that this certification externally endorses.’
