At Merit Medical, our mission as a global healthcare company is to improve the lives of people, families, and communities around the world. A significant part of caring for people is also ensuring our practices as a company protect the safety of our employees and the well-being of the environment.
To help guide us, our facilities worldwide use a set of international standards created by ISO (International Organization of Standardization)—an independent, non-governmental global group that develops guidelines for companies like Merit to use to help ensure quality, efficiency, and safety of its products, services, and systems.
There are many different ISO certifications, each with separate standards and criteria to follow. No matter the focus, ISO certification means that a system, protocol, service, or procedure has met all the requirements for that specific standardization.
The following is a breakdown of the ISO certifications within our sustainability program that our facilities have received as well as our goals for 2021–2022:
