Product safety and quality are absolutely critical in sectors such as pharmaceuticals and related industries, including veterinary, cosmetics, biomedical and fine chemicals. Certifications are a key tool and an indispensable requirement to ensure optimal management of these products and safe commercialisation.
One of the most important certifications to ensure that products meet essential quality standards is GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), which focuses on the quality of manufacturing processes and product safety. This certification covers aspects related to staff, facilities and equipment, production, distribution and storage, documentation and quality controls. Companies with GMP certification can prove that they have a rigorous quality management system in place.
Another important certification in sectors such as those mentioned above is ISO 9001 (International Organisation for Standardisation), which is the leading global quality management standard, providing a normative framework for organisations. ISO 9001 can be integrated with other management systems, such as ISO 14001, which helps companies achieve their business objectives while meeting their environmental responsibilities.
As well as these general certifications, there are specific certifications for each sector.
- Pharmaceutical industry. (GDP Good Distribution Practices) certification provides a quality system for warehouses and distribution centres that handle medicines. Organisations in charge of distributing this type of product must align their activity to these standards, which guarantee the safety and quality of the products during the distribution and storage process. GDP certification ensures that proper temperature, humidity and storage conditions are maintained during transport.
- Veterinary sector. Like the pharmaceutical sector, the veterinary sector is also governed by certifications such as GMP and GDP. However, there are specific regulatory frameworks such as SILUM, a national registry for all operators that use products for animal feed.
- Cosmetics sector. ISO 22716 certification sets out the requirements for the quality management system in the manufacture, control and distribution of cosmetic products. This certification guarantees the implementation of good manufacturing practices to control the risks associated with cosmetic products.
- Biomedical sector. ISO 13485 certification focuses on quality management system requirements for medical devices. This certification is intended for use in organisations for the design and development, production, installation, service and sales of medical devices.
