26 May What’s involved in gaining PS 9000:2011 certification?
Our certificate can be viewed here.
The standard takes in all parts of the pharmaceutical industry supply chain and governs all job handling and management processes within the pharmaceutical industry. This means you can be confident that all of our products are produced in an environment with strict hygiene and cleanliness controls.
To qualify for PS9000:2011 Denny Bros had to satisfy a number of criteria. These include:
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
Our GMP system ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimise the risks involved in the production of our labelling and packaging that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.
Our quality management system provides a basis for the continuous improvement of the organisation’s effectiveness and efficiency, whilst also taking into consideration the various needs of all stakeholders, such as customers, suppliers, and employees.
All staff know what their responsibilities are and to whom they are responsible. Authority is pre-defined, documented and well communicated to ensure activities take place in a controlled manner.
Our management teams have a responsibility to define and implement effective purchasing processes to ensure purchased materials meet requirements of the standard.
Creating the right work environment is critical to ensuring not only product conformity, but also the ability and desire of people to perform effectively.
Preventing contamination of medicinal products may require that the components be manufactured under particular standards of cleanliness.
With all these processes and policies in place, our customers can be assured that Denny Bros’ labelling and packaging for the pharmaceutical sector is fit for purpose and, ultimately, guarantees that the patient is protected.
