Stringent Quality Management System and Commitment to Engineering Excellence Meets Market's Regulatory Requirements

CANTON, Mass., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NEI , a leading provider of application platforms, deployment solutions and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs worldwide, today announced that it has achieved the ISO 13485:2003 Medical Device Quality Management System certification at its manufacturing facility in Canton, Mass. The objective of ISO 13485:2003 is to facilitate harmonized medical device regulatory requirements for quality management systems, and its requirements are unique to organizations building medical devices.

The ISO 13485:2003 standard requires an organization to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements applicable to medical devices and related services. To meet the criteria of the ISO 13485 standard, NEI developed and implemented a comprehensive range of policies used to maintain its quality management system for medical devices, including an internal quality policy to ensure customer requirements are identified and fulfilled in the solution design and production cycles. Additionally, NEI must adhere to a variety of quality controls, including the validation of production and service processes, the validation of monitoring and measuring devices, and by conducting risk assessments of certain process changes.

"NEI recognizes the strict parameters and regulatory requirements involved in medical device manufacturing and has developed rigorous practices in support of those metrics," said John Gauthier, director of quality assurance at NEI. "Central to achieving ISO 13485:2003 certification is NEI's commitment to frequent audits, management's evaluation of its manufacturing protocols, and maintaining a constant dialog with customers and suppliers to ensure that requirements and specifications are fully met.
