Naprotek, Inc. has successfully renewed its ISO 13485:2016 certification. With the recertification, Naprotek is equipped to serve the medical device industry with a proven quality management system.

“Naprotek has been the high reliability EMS provider in Silicon Valley for 24 years,” stated Jayne Carthy, Director of Strategic Business Development. “Our customers depend on us, and we take great pride in our quality and service. PERIOD!  Our ISO 13485 is a certification that we take very seriously as more than 25 percent of our annual revenue is driven from the MedTech industry. As we continue to grow, this will remain a cornerstone of our business.”

The ISO 13485 standard supplements the ISO 9001 standard and is specific to medical device quality systems. ISO 13485:2012 was published in January 2012 and supersedes ISO 13485:2003. The new version of the standard was developed to harmonize with the EU Medical Device Directives 90/385/EEC, 93/42/EEC and 98/79/EC. It provides assurance to medical device end-users outside of the United States and assurance of compliance to the European legislation.
