Heat treatment company Bodycote’s facility in Nogent, France has earned the Performance Review Institute’s MedAccred accreditation.

This, along with its Derby, UK and Ipswich, MA, USA locations, makes Bodycote the first company to receive multiple MedAccred accreditations, it says.

MedAccred 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 help ensure compliance and quality.

Bodycote Nogent offers heat treatment services, serving the medical device and implants markets for France and Europe. It has a complementary partnership with Bodycote’s hot isostatic pressing (HIP) plant in Magny-Cours, also in France.
