ITALCERT
ISO 13485 Certified


AAT Medical is ISO 13485 certified. This standard, created, by the International Organization for Standardization, draws specific requirements and guidelines for a quality management system which manufacturers of medical devices can implement to provide products and services that consistently meet both customer and regulatory requirements. Such a quality management system is required for an organization to develop, manufacture and distribute medical devices and companies are audited yearly in order to ensure a constant level of control and continuous improvement.
