Oxonica Inc Awarded ISO 9001: 2000 Certification

Oxford, UK | Posted on February 4th, 2008

Following an assessment by Underwriters Laboratories, Oxonica Inc., a US-based subsidiary of Oxonica plc, has been successful in achieving ISO 9001 accreditation. This internationally recognised certification for quality is a standard in use worldwide as a benchmark for quality.

Oxonica Inc. has been awarded this accreditation for its activities in the development and manufacture of nanoparticles for OEM partners and for the design and development of nanoparticle-based applications.

"Oxonica plc was awarded the ISO standard in March 2006 for its UK-based activities. This second accreditation demonstrates Oxonica's commitment to quality and continuous improvement in all its operations" said Dr. Kevin Matthews, CEO of Oxonica plc.
