Expert Resource: LEADING MEDACCRED EXPERTS
Expert Resource is the leading provider of MedAccred and Nadcap consulting services.
100% of our clients (hundreds) pass their first attempt at
certification with PRI. Most of our consultants are spread
throughout the United States, England, and China, but we have also
helped companies in over 10 other countries. Headquartered in
California, we will go anywhere to help you. Our
clients are very diversified in size, location, and special process
expertise. We have met the needs of the largest OEM's and very small
job shops alike. Our prices are highly competitive and our consultants
are very personable. We specialize in every area of MedAccred and
we guarantee our work.
consultants must be (1) technical experts in their fields (ex: Welding,
Plastics, Heat Treating, Sterilization, etc.) and (2) experienced
experts with the MedAccred requirements, many of which are still
developing. Most of our competitors are ISO 9000 consultants with
some vague understanding of Nadcap or MedAccred and very little
experience in those specific fields. Be careful not to use
someone who claims to be able to simply "interpret any standard".
MedAccred requirements are very technical and your consultant should be
a technical expert with decades of experience.
majority of our MedAccred consultants are Nadcap Lead Auditors, which
means they are the authorities. They work part-time for PRI (the
MedAccred and Nadcap audit certification company) and part-time for
Expert Resource. They are trained by PRI (the authority approved
by all the OEM's and Primes) and have hundreds of audits in their
repertoire. Be sure you are relying on the best because they will
utimately affect not only your certification success but more
importantly they will be modifying how your company
operates. It is critical. Don't leave your company in
the hands of a novice. Our previous history with Nadcap and
MedAccred audits (with clients of various sizes with various special
processes) resulted in 2 or less minor findings per audit, some of
which were flawless audits. Does your MedAccred consultant have a
proven success record?
