Bodycote has announced that its facility in Ipswich, Massachusetts, USA, has earned MedAccred accreditation in recognition of Bodycote’s quality control procedures. The Ipswich plant, in close proximity to Bodycote’s Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) facility in Andover, offers a range of services for the region’s medical device and implants market, offering heat treatment to process and strengthen medical implants, surgical and dental tools, and other medical devices.

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.

Adherence to these requirements leads to greater process discipline, operational efficiency and ongoing improvement which results in higher quality and performance. The process provides for consistent and standardised critical process audits which result in fewer redundant onsite audits by multiple OEMs and first tier customers.
