Argo’s Solution for Medical Device Translation Receives ISO Certification

Argo Translation, provider of efficient, accurate translation and localization services focused on quality and clarity for a wide range of companies across North America, announced today that its Regulatory Conformance Platform for delivering quality-assured medical translation and medical device localization has received ISO 9001:2000 certification.

Chicago, IL – November 5, 2009 – Argo Translation has received ISO 9001:2000 certification, an internationally recognized standard issued to organizations with a quality management system. Argo’s medical translation solution, launched last month as the Regulatory Compliance Platform (RCP), ISO quality-assures the localization supply chain for clients in regulated industries such as medical, medical devices, pharmaceuticals and financial.

The certification was authorized by TÜVRheinland®, a premier global provider of independent testing and certification services with 15 locations throughout North America. ISO 9001:2000 provides a set of requirements that must be in place to have a quality management system, regardless of the organization’s size, product or service line, or public or private status. Certification to the standard is voluntary, and organizations must complete a rigorous auditing process by a third-party registrar.

“Quality has always been a cornerstone of our service at Argo Translation,” said Peter Argondizzo, President. “Achieving this certification with a perfect score of zero infractions is excellent recognition for our project management team and their commitment to repeatable quality.”
