Safety and regulation are at the core of the pharmaceutical industry
Acting as a responsible partner to the pharma & medical sector requires dedicated time and resource to compliance activities. This is something DS Smith takes seriously, and aims to lead the packaging industry in.
Pharmaceutical products place extreme demands on the quality of development and production of packaging, whether it comes to liquid, semisolid or solid products.
Before the packaging development phase, however, a comprehensive quality management system is a prerequisite to being recognised as an official supplier to many manufacturers of pharmaceutical products and medical devices.
DS Smith achieves compliance by attaining the following international certifications, among others: ISO 9001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System and OHSAS Occupational Health & Safety.
The demands on pharmaceutical packaging are many and varied. In addition to the general requirements that apply to any packaging for pharmaceutical products and medical devices, regional and country-specific legal and safety requirements must also be met.
