NASP Expands ISO 13458 and ISO 11135-1 Certification Scope to Include Design Control Along with Renewal

Press release date: Dec 19, 2012

NASP expands ISO 13458 and ISO 11135-1 certification scope to include design control along with renewal:

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) provides International Standards that ensure products and services are consistently safe, reliable and of good quality. From a business perspective using ISO can be a strategic tool to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of company operations. They can help companies to access new international markets, level the playing field in competitive markets and facilitate free and fair global trade. ISO has over 19,000 standards touching almost all aspects of daily life.

When products and services conform to International Standards consumers can have confidence that they are safe, reliable and of good quality. For example, ISO's standards on road safety, toy safety and secure medical packaging are just a selection of those that help make the world a safer place.

North American Sterilization & Packaging (NASP) was recently audited for certification renewal for ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 11135-1:2007. NASP has maintained certification to appropriate ISO standards since 2001 and this recertification presented no undue challenges even though the company added the element of design controls. The expansion in scope permits NASP to add the additional services of design management to the already well rounded capabilities of the company.
