Meet safety and quality standards for pharmaceutical products
In the pharmaceutical industry, strict standards exist to ensure the safe consumption and manufacture of drugs. Amid the dynamic industry landscape, pharmaceutical companies which develop, produce, and market drugs face intense pressure to increase and maximize profits.
Contamination of drugs and pharmaceutical products can pose serious health hazards. Regular plant environmental monitoring is essential to prevent contamination during the production process of drugs. The pharmaceutical companies must ensure their products and processes meet relevant safety and quality standards and fulfil the demands for regulatory compliance. This compliance is necessary to prevent product adulteration and microbial contamination, as public health and safety is at stake.
In addition, the rising demands and expectations of consumers for better drug products, and the limited patent lifespan for manufacturers to profit from new products, further exacerbates the challenges of the pharmaceutical industry.
A company will incur huge losses when their pharmaceutical products are recalled. These include the loss of sales, reduced customer confidence, damage to brand reputation, lawsuits filed by consumers and government authorities etc.
As such, all pharmaceutical manufacturers must thoroughly conduct pharmaceutical testing or analysis of their materials, processes, equipment, techniques, environments and provide staff training, in order to ensure their final products are consistent, safe and effective
