Bodycote gets MedAccred accreditation

Bodycote, a heat treating services provider, has recently announced that its Derby, UK location is the first facility in Europe to earn the MedAccred accreditation underlining the high standards of quality achieved. MedAccred, administered by Performance Review Institute (PRI), is an industry managed approach to ensuring critical manufacturing process quality throughout the medical device supply chain. It establishes stringent consensus audit criteria based on industry and specific OEM requirements that ensure compliance and quality. 

Bodycote Derby offers heat treatment and hot isostatic pressing (HIP) services, which is fast becoming a centre of excellence serving the medical device and implants markets for the UK, Ireland and Europe. Bodycote continues to invest in new capacity and technology to support opportunities within the growing medical industry for classic heat treatment and HIP along with its Specialty Stainless Steel Processes (S3P) and Ion Implantation services in Europe.

For Bodycote, the process provides for consistent and standardised critical process audits which result in fewer redundant onsite audits by multiple OEMs and first tier customers. The MedAccred certification should reinforce customer confidence in Bodycote as a premier quality provider of heat treating.
