The certificate was granted based on an intensive audit of STD Med’s manufacturing facilities by the Brazilian agency.

STD Med president Steven Tallarida said, "STD Med is one of the best middle market medical device manufacturers in the business and we look forward to bringing U.S. quality medical products into the South American healthcare system."

BMR Medical president Rafael Martinelli de Oliveira said since 2006, STD Med has been a manufacturing partner and has always provided the company with outstanding service and high quality products.

"They understand the Brazilian market and their willingness and ability to meet local requirements has always been a top priority," Oliveira added.

"A result of this commitment to the Brazilian market is ANVISA GMP certification, which will allow us to launch new products faster and more efficiently."
