CMSI ADDS TO THEIR CURRENT ISO 13485:2003 REGISTRATION BY ACHIEVING ISO 9001:2008 REGISTRATION



WESTON, Florida. – July 7, 2006. Contract Manufacturing Solutions, Inc., better known as CMSI, announced today compliance to the ISO 13485:2003 Standard.  BSI Management Systems performed the audit in July 2006 and recommended Contract Manufacturing Solutions, Inc. for certification immediately thereafter.

"Contract Manufacturing Solutions, Inc. is one of a select few firms in their industry to have taken this step. Compliance represents a COMMITMENT on our behalf to take our company far beyond the organizational standards of our competitors and to surpass our partner’s expectations for a quality organization," said Edwin Aguilera, President for Contract Manufacturing Solutions, Inc.

The certification is a program of the International Organization for Standardization, founded in 1946 to develop common manufacturing, trade and communications standards. The ISO standards provide a framework for an organization’s structure, management and operational systems and procedures, which together will ensure consistency, efficiency, and continuous improvement of services. ISO also helps identify weakness in processes and the root causes of problems so that continuous improvements can be made.

In today's global marketplace, medical device companies are utilizing ISO 13485:2003 as a platform to build their business management system. For many companies, registration to ISO 13485 is a key to securing and maintaining global business.


What is ISO 13485?

ISO 13485 is an international standard, recognized throughout the world for establishing a business management system specific to the medical device industry. Borrowing the structure of ISO 9001:2000, ISO 13485 is applicable to organizations that manufacture private label medical devices, in vitro diagnostic medical devices, and medical components.

Created by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 13485:2003 is based on eight quality management principles: customer focus, leadership, involvement of people, process approach, system approach to management, continual improvement, fact based decision-making and mutually beneficial supplier relationships. When fully adopted, these principles have been proven to enhance organizational performance.
