JSC Farmak pharmaceutical company (Kyiv) at the end of June 2019 received two new GMP (good manufacturing practice) certificates for two production sites and a new storage area commissioned at the beginning of the current year from the Polish regulatory authority, the press service of the company has said. According to the report, these sites have undergone planned recertification and confirmed their compliance with the EU’s GMP requirements.
The company passed state recertification conducted by the regulatory authorities of Ukraine and Poland in March of the current year. In particular, the company passed a GMP recertification by the State Service of Ukraine on Medicines and Drugs Control and a planned recertification of production sites, where products for the Polish market are manufactured, on the part of the Chief Pharmaceutical Inspectorate of Poland. According to the results of inspections, 19 production sites received national GMP certificates, and two more production and storage areas received European GMP certificates.
“This once again proves that the conditions in which Farmak products are manufactured comply with the European requirements. Today, all finished drug manufacturing facilities have national GMP certificates, 14 of them are certified by European regulatory authorities in Croatia and Poland. No one pharmaceutical company in Ukraine has such a level of European recognition,” Olha Oleksiychuk, the director for quality at Farmak, said.
