Ultrasound products and services provider Conquest Imaging, Stockton, Calif, announced in February that it has been certified to ISO 9001:2008 by TÜV Rheinland, a global provider of technical, safety, and certification services.

ISO 9001:2008 provides a set of requirements that must be in place for an organization to have an effective quality management system. Certification to the standard is voluntary, and organizations seeking certification must complete a rigorous auditing process by a third-party registrar such as TÜV Rheinland. The certification process must be repeated periodically, typically every 3 years.

“Conquest Imaging has always had a reputation for quality above and beyond our competitors in a very crowded market” said Matt Tomory, Conquest Imaging’s vice president of sales. “This industry is self-regulated, which allows for a huge disparity in quality; with ISO certification we stand out even more in our market. Partnering with TÜV Rheinland for the certification and continuing audits will ensure our continuous quality improvement program will only make us more efficient and remain in front of the rest of the industry.”
