CAE announces today that it has received the ISO 13485:2016 certification for Medical Device and Quality Management Systems for its facilities in Montreal (Canada) and Sarasota (United-States).
“We are extremely proud of the work of our passionate employees who completed the ISO 13485-2016 certification process, which recognizes that CAE meets all the requirements to design and manufacture medical devices, said Pascal Grenier, Senior Vice President, Global Operations, Technologies & Innovation.
