STUTTGART, Germany, September 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Movianto, the leading European healthcare logistics provider, has further proven its commitment to excellence by gaining ISO 13485 for its European Distribution Center in the Netherlands.
Continually striving to achieve even higher levels of quality, the Movianto facility in Oss has recently been certified according to the ISO 13485 standard. In addition to the comprehensive quality management norm ISO 9001, Movianto now also is certified according to the extensive quality standards for "Warehousing, distribution and value added services for medical device products".
The European Distribution Center in Oss successfully passed the audit at the end of August, now fully meeting Medical Devices client´s needs and regulatory requirements.
The latest ISO standard embodies the prerequisites for a system of quality management for medical devices and specifies where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide services that consistently meet customer needs and regulatory requirements. The stringent audit includes an examination on aspects such as the demands for the inspection and traceability for implantable devices as well as guidelines on the documentation and validation of processes for sterile medical devices.
The decision to undergo such a demanding audit, which is by no means mandatory in the logistics sector, once again shows Movianto's dedication and engagement in the medical device and healthcare industry.
"We are delighted to have fulfilled the standards necessary for the ISO 13485 audit. As a company that is not only dedicated to healthcare logistics but also one that proves this on a daily basis, it was imperative for us to once again illustrate our commitment to quality standards on a Europe-wide stage. The consistency of quality that we can offer each of our clients, is the reason that they in turn remain committed to Movianto", states Marrie Groeneveld, CEO at Movianto.
