Our Services

Adherence to Good Manufacturing Practice requirements (GMPs) is of fundamental importance for the pharmaceutical industry. GMP requires that manufacturers or distributors operating in domestic or international markets run an adequate Quality System for the manufacture, testing, packaging, labelling, storage and distribution of medicinal products in place. A Qualified Person is required for the quality oversight and release of your products to the European market.

This system should ensure that the drug products are adequately safe and effective for their intended use and meet the required quality and purity characteristics.

We support you to establish these requirements in a way that fits with your company’s needs.

We guide you in setting up an efficient Quality System, support training of your personnel and provide advice for and support you with the preparation, conduct and follow-up of audits and inspections.

Global regulatory agencies require manufacturers to conduct audits of suppliers and contract manufacturers to verify the suitability of their quality management systems (QMS).

As certified GMP Auditors, we can help ease the burden on the quality team especially for those companies with numerous API suppliers by providing additional resources to manage the supplier audit programme.

We offer a wide range of internal and external Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliance audit services, including:

  • Client site pre-inspection audits
  • On site support during regulatory inspections (German and/or English)
  • Client site open-book audits to confirm GMP standards
  • Pre-selection contractor audits on behalf of a client
  • Routine review audits of existing contractors
  • Supplier audits plus API, excipient and packing component audits
  • For cause CAPA audits

Our auditors are highly experienced industry experts who understand processes and the operator perspective. Our auditors go through an intensive auditor training program leading to independent certification as pharmaceutical auditors.
