First Accreditation for MedAccred in Europe Awarded to Bodycote

01 June 2016

Bodycote has become the first company in Europe to receive a critical process accreditation from MedAccred.  Bodycote’s Derby site received accreditation for Heat Treating after successfully completing a demanding audit which included a thorough review of the facility’s vacuum heat treating compliance to customer requirements, rigorous industry standards and best practices.

MedAccred is a new and innovative industry managed approach to supply chain oversight. The program conducts in-depth critical process audits on behalf of the medical device industry and through supply chain accreditation, improves overall standards of supplier quality and most importantly enhances patient safety.  MedAccred is administered on behalf of the medical device industry by the not-for-profit Performance Review Institute (PRI).

Speaking about Bodycote’s success, Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of PRI said: “I would like to congratulate the entire team at the Bodycote Derby facility.  This accreditation from MedAccred demonstrates that Bodycote is able to consistently meet or exceed the requirements of their medical device customers.  The fact that Bodycote has become the first company to gain accredited status in Europe is a significant achievement and an important step forward for the MedAccred program in terms of its global reach.”

Bodycote is already extending their participation in MedAccred with audits scheduled at their facilities in Ipswich, MA, USA in July 2016 and Nogent en Bassigny, France in October 2016.
