Intrinsic Imaging, the Boston-based clinical research organization (CRO) arm of South Texas Radiology Group in San Antonio, has obtained ISO 22301:2012 business continuity certification, a quality designation awarded by the International Organization for Standardization.
The quality designation demonstrates the company’s ability to minimize, protect against, and respond to any disruptive incident during a clinical trial. Previously, Intrinsic earned the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 designations. The former demonstrates the ability to consistently provide medical devices and related services that meet regulatory standards, and the latter specifies requirements for a quality management system.
“Intrinsic Imaging is committed to quality and to ensuring our sponsors’ clinical trials are executed efficiently and without disruption,” said Todd A. Joron, B.Sc., M.B.A, president and COO in a statement. “Intrinsic Imaging’s ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management System certification ensures that clinical trials conducted by Intrinsic Imaging are protected from interruption, regardless of the nature of the disruptive incident.”
Intrinsic Imaging was certified by the British Standards Institute, the world’s first national standards body.
