Evac+Chair achieves quality standard

Evac+Chair International has been awarded the ISO 13485:2003 standard for the manufacture of its complete range of specialist medical devices.

ISO 13485 is an internationally-recognised standard developed to ensure that companies producing Class 1 and Class 2 medical devices consistently meet regulatory requirements. Evac+Chair was awarded the standard after demonstrating its ability to comply with quality management systems.

The standard applies to the company’s entire product range, which includes evacuations chairs, and its ParAid Medical range of medical handling and transportations systems, which are used by ambulance and air ambulance services.

Evac+Chair managing director, Mark Wallace, said: “Achieving the ISO 13485 standard is very important for Evac+Chair International as it recognises the expertise of our teams in interpreting the needs of our customers and maintaining quality standards throughout our entire manufacturing process.€ᄄ€ᄄ

“Achieving the ISO standard will support the business’ growth strategy by opening up new opportunities to develop and manufacture Class 2 Medical Devices for our customers, in the UK and internationally. This achievement sets us apart as a leading example of manufacturing best practice to the sector.”
