Auditing Services

GMP: Good Manufacturing Practices

ASTM: American Society for Testing and Materials

ISO: International Organization for Standardization


Good manufacturing practices (GMP/ISO/ASTM) require that companies ensure the supply of active ingredients, excipients, packaging materials and services capable of affecting the product quality, from qualified suppliers. Also regulatory authorities increasingly require to closely monitor suppliers of components/ingredients.

Recent scandals, such as heparine or dried milk, caused by suppliers whose quality systems were ineffective or even non-existent, have determined the need to step up monitoring, forcing companies to implement gigantic – and therefore highly expensive, audit plans.

The whole works are complicated by the present geographical relocation of the supply chain, in connection with an increase in the supply of components/ingredients from Asian suppliers.
