GMP Certification Opens the Door to New International Markets for Quat-Chem
Quat-Chem constantly strive to improve all aspects related to the production and supply of our hygiene products.
We are proud to announce that we have formally been GMP Certified by MSL (Microbiological Solutions Ltd) for the manufacturer of Chemical Biocides and Disinfectants.
Good manufacturing practices (GMP) are guidelines that confirm proper controls are fully exercised in our manufacturing processes, so that products are manufactured to meet the quality standards of our industry. Quat-Chem has successfully demonstrated strong quality management systems, process controls and robust operating procedures for the consistent production and supply of hygiene products.
Quat-Chem’s Quality Management System (QMS) will now incorporate GMP guidelines alongside the ISO 9001:2008 compliance standards to meet our customers' quality requirements.
Dr Rubinah Chowdhary, Scientific Director, said ‘Our Production and Quality Control teams work to a ‘continuous improvement’ program for our operational processes, and have successfully undertaken ISO quality control and environmental audits earlier this year. The GMP certification will be an additional accolade for the Quat-Chem team following the ‘Manufacturing Business of the Year’ and ‘International Trade’ awards by Chemicals Northwest, UK, in March 2015’.
‘GMP will serve to increase market confidence in the Company, and enhance our positioning in international markets, better placing us to meet market demands, future challenges and strategic plans’, stated Arthur Todd, Quat-Chem’s Business Development Manager.
