Regulatory and Quality Solutions Certified Women's Business Enterprise

R&Q, provider of industry-leading regulatory and quality consulting and engineering services to medical device companies, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise Council-PA-DE-sNJ, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

The designation signals a competitive advantage for R&Q’s FDA-experienced team of more than 80 RA/QA experts as medical device and pharmaceutical companies often look to vary their supplier base with more diversity and/or minority-owned businesses. The honor is especially meaningful to Cofounder and President, Maria Fagan, and has been a long time in the making...

Maria Fagan R and Q President and Co-Founder“Lisa Casavant, Cofounder and EVP, and I are very proud and honored to receive this certification. Since R&Q’s inception in 2008 it has been a woman-owned business. Gaining this certification will open additional doors for R&Q and further enable R&Q’s vision of bringing medical devices to market and keeping them on the market… which ultimately improves patient’s lives. We look forward to further impacting patients and the medical device industry with this certification.”

WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women's Business Enterprise Council-PA-DE-sNJ is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

R&Q is truly Engineered by Women, and it's an honor to take that sentiment further through this certification.
