Home Life Sciences Validation & Compliance Transport & Cold Chain Validation

Validation of temperature controlled storage & distribution

Nowadays global regulatory agencies focus on the entire pharmaceutical supply chain. Pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors are obligated to guarantee that their products get to the patient, under the required temperature conditions. To demonstrate compliance, qualification and validation of essential components is a must.

Medicines are susceptible to variations in ambient temperature during their production and distribution processes. This can greatly affect the quality of the pharmaceuticals. Therefore, the logistics and distribution of medicines is subject to strict regulations (GDP 2013/C).

On of the biggest challenges is the revised GDP guidelines is that the product must remain within the provided specifications throughout the entire supply chain. This pretains to both chilled products and products which should be stores at room temperature. Any deviations to this should also be treated appropriately. Agidens Life Sciences can support you in both the qualification and validation of this.
