Certified Supplier Scheme
In the absence of mandatory GMP standards for the manufacture and supply of pharmaceutical packaging materials and excipients, the PQG developed the PS 9000 standard for Pharmaceutical Packaging Materials (incorporating ISO 9001) and PS 9100 for Pharmaceutical Excipients. These well used standards are recognised and acknowledged by the UK MHRA (previously MCA).
Certification to the PQG Certified Supplier scheme is given by independant, accredited, certification bodies to suppliers to the pharmaceutical and related industries that meet expected standards. Suppliers certified to the PQG scheme are entitled to use PQG Certified Supplier logos on their company literature, which indicates to the pharmaceutical industry that they conform to the GMP standards expected for suppliers to the industry.
To be eligible for PQG Certified Supplier status, all assessments must be carried out by auditors that are certified by IRCA for QMS to the current ISO 9001 standard and by PQG for PS 9000 or other standards.
