Another successful audit for local manufacturer, Bedfont® Scientific

Bedfont® Scientific is proud to have passed its first unannounced BSI audit.

Bedfont® Scientific, based in Harrietsham, Kent, is a medical device manufacturer that specialises in breath analysis devices which are used to help detect certain health conditions. As a medical company, there are many compliances to adhere to, but they are pleased to announce they have passed their very first unexpected audit.

The BSI, otherwise known as the British Standards Institution, is the national standards body for the UK and implements technical standards on a wide range of products and services. The BSI introduced unannounced audits in April 2014, aiming to assure day-to-day compliance of the manufacturer’s product and quality management systems.

Louise Bateman, QA & RA Manager, stated, “It was a surprise but not something that worried us. Overall I’m very happy with how the audit went and you can see at times like this how the company is developing in all aspects and how hard the teams work to enable us to sell medical products into the market”.

Trevor Smith, Chairman, adds, “This is truly good news as we can use it as one of the barometers as to the “health” of the Company. When the auditors turned up unexpected yesterday I happened to be in reception. In the past an event like this would fill me with nerves; however, I immediately felt at ease considering all the hard work that has gone into our QA. This is nothing short of excellent! Hard work and doing your very best always pays off eventually.”
