In March 2014 Advena Ltd set up a second business, Advena Medical Ltd. with Kirsty Ostle at the helm, to specifically service clients based in the UK and EU. This left the original business, Advena Ltd, to service clients outside of the EU.
Despite these two businesses having their own client portfolios they share premises, senior business services, consultant services and this website.
Advena Ltd and Advena Medical Ltd share a formal Quality Management System and are certified by Lloyd’s Register (LRQA) for conformity to ISO 13485; 2016 for European Authorised Representative service, quality management, regulatory affairs and document creation and control for medical device manufacturers.
