WestMARC 'Raises the Bar' with ISO13485
Following the assessment in February, BSI has advised that WestMARC has been successful in achieving accreditation to ISO13485. This international standard specifies the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS) which is geared towards the design, development, production, installation and servicing of medical devices.
For WestMARC, this includes wheelchairs, spares, special seating and prosthetics as well as the provision of the related clinical and support services.
Achievement of this coveted registration provides the reassurance - by means of an independently audited demonstration - to users and carers that WestMARC complies with an appropriate standard of service delivery.
