RNS Number : 5670N
Advanced Oncotherapy PLC

ADVANCED ONCOTHERAPY PLC

("Advanced Oncotherapy" or the "Company")

 

ISO 13485:2016 certification for medical devices

 

 

Advanced Oncotherapy (AIM: AVO), the developer of a next-generation proton therapy system for cancer treatment, together with its subsidiary ADAM S.A., announces that it has obtained ISO 13485:2016 certification. The certification was awarded following an audit by independent compliance specialists Lloyd's Register.

 

ISO 13485:2016 is the internationally recognised quality standard to ensure the consistent design, development, production, installation and sale of medical devices that are safe for their intended purposes.

 

This certification represents an important milestone for the Company. It reflects its commitment to safety and to providing a high-quality product and shows the focus that the Company has on risk-based decision making throughout the organisation.

 

This certification enables Advanced Oncotherapy and ADAM S.A. to continue to develop the LIGHT proton therapy system in compliance with the highest standards for safety and product performance, and to make its product available for the first patient treatment, once the LIGHT proton therapy system medical device file has been approved.

 

Dr Michel Baelen, Advanced Oncotherapy's Director of Regulatory Affairs and former Vice President for IBA's Regulatory and Quality Assurance Affairs, said: "This successful audit demonstrates our dedication to ensuring that the infrastructure to develop and manufacture our product is safe, effective and reliable. Advanced Oncotherapy's and ADAM S.A.'s compliance with this standard illustrates the importance that it places on the quality of its product and the need to have robust processes across our entire organisation in accordance with the stringent requirements associated with medical devices."
