Pulse Systems Receives Dual Certification Under ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 9001:2008; Medical Device Industry Supplier Gains Recognition for the Quality Systems Utilized to Manufacture Stents and Other Precision Components


2/4/2009 11:09:47 AM

CONCORD, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulse Systems announced today that the company has attained dual certification under the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) quality systems standards, ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 9001:2008.

"Achievement of these highly-regarded quality certifications reinforces our commitment to providing world-class contract manufacturing services to the medical device industry, and communicates the significant progress we have made toward that goal," said Herb Bellucci, President and CEO of Pulse Systems, commenting on the importance of the announcement to the company's business strategy.

"Customers can now take advantage of our superior capabilities in laser cutting and other precision fabrication services with the confidence of knowing our manufacturing processes comply with the demanding requirements of both ISO 13485 and the newest version of ISO 9001," added Henry Maze, Quality Manager at Pulse Systems, who led the certification program for the company.

The ISO 13485:2003 standard is specifically designed to certify medical device manufacturers and their key suppliers. This standard defines requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer specifications and regulatory requirements.

ISO 9001:2008 is the most recent update of the widely-recognized ISO 9001 standard. While not specific to medical device manufacturing, ISO 9001 is intended to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of a quality management system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Pulse Systems had previously earned ISO 9001:2000 certification in January 2006.
