The safety and efficiency of medicines is highly determined by the quality of packaging. Due to this critical factor the Pharmaceutical Quality Group (PQG) have developed PS 9000 - the latest standard for manufacturers and suppliers of packaging any material for medicines. This system has been created to follow similar guidelines identified with the ISO 9002 quality management system. The PS 9000 pharmaceutical management system requires manufacturers and assemblers to ensure packaging materials used meet the 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

3. Clear practices within production, minimising counterfeit medicines
4. More clarity understanding of roles and responsibilities in producing quality pharmaceutical products.
