Montvale, NJ – December 12, 2017 – Oncology Services International (OSI), the world’s leading independent service organization for radiation oncology devices, today announced its expanded ISO certifications. Having held the ISO 9001 certification for many years, OSI has now added another level of quality assurance with the ISO 13485:2016 certification.

The letter from Lead Auditor William J. Anderson states: “It is with great pleasure that I can officially confirm that Oncology Services Int’l will be Registered/Re-Certified and Upgraded to: ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 13485:2016.” The letter continues: “Oncology Services International is a very proactive company and it was demonstrated throughout all facilities reviewed.”
