Sterex Electrolysis International Ltd is a registered British company with ISO 9001-2008 certification.
Sterex has undertaken an unrelenting and exhaustive quest to obtain the important standard of CE mark approval. It is a sought after and highly prized standard and a unique selling point. If a needle is said to be sterile but does not have a CE number, it is not approved and there is no guarantee that it is sterile.
All manufacturers of medical devices that are class 1 sterile, measuring, classes 2a, 2b and 3 must be assessed by a notified body in order to carry the CE mark and for their goods to be marketed freely anywhere within the community. Basic class 1 medical devices are required to be self registered with a competent authority. Obtaining ISO 13485:2003 demonstrates conformity to an accredited quality management system.
An epilation needle is classed by the MHRA and the FDA as a medical device. Eventually the sale of medical devices, without the approved CE marking, will be prohibited throughout the community and manufacturers of medical devices who mark their products with CE and are not approved will be liable to prosecution as will the distributors who sell them. This mark must carry a number ( Sterex is 0120 ). This means that Sterex is approved through an independent assessor which is SGS.UK Ltd.
When looking for a quality electrolysis needle, you need to check that they conform to all the above to be assured of the highest quality. With Sterex Electrolysis you can be sure of the best quality electrolysis needles possible.
