When it comes to the safety and efficiency of medicines the quality of packaging plays a critical factor. Pharmaceutical Quality Group (PQG) have developed PS 9000 – the standard for manufacturers and suppliers of packaging materials for medicines. The system has been designed in line with the ISO 9001 quality management system.
PS 9000 requires pharmaceutical manufacturers and assemblers to ensure packaging materials used are of appropriate quality. The system focuses on the development and implementation of a quality management system designed to offer assurance of the product's quality, as well as enhancing customer satisfaction.
One of the main objectives to the PS 9000 standard is to identify and eliminate risks to ensure that products are produced safely and to the correct requirements. The standard allows a business to identify key roles and responsibilities regarding producing quality products.
In accordance with the Good Manufacturing Practice requirements PS 9000 will verify that materials are of appropriate quality and that the correct procedures have been followed regarding the checking, traceability, contamination, and hygiene controls.
Reasons to implement PS 9000 Pharmaceutical Standard:
1. Improve your business performance
2. Ensure quality of pharmaceutical packaging materials
3. Clear practices within production, minimising counterfeit medicines
4. More clarity understanding of roles and responsibilities in producing quality pharmaceutical products.
