Two industry leaders—R&Q and Maetrics—merged in 2020 to become RQM+, the largest medical device and diagnostics focused full-service regulatory and quality consulting firm in the world. The integration of our leadership teams and the extensive skills and experience of our collective resources have created a highly agile and scalable global organization.

With offices in the United States, United Kingdom, and Switzerland, our large global footprint allows us to meet the regulatory and quality support needs of international clients of all sizes.
