Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients
In order to do their job properly, medicinal products must contain an adequate amount of a substance known in legislation as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). These substances may affect the human or animal organism by one or more pharmacological, immunological or metabolic means. In this respect, active ingredients must meet very strict criteria regarding their production, storage, transport and incorporation into medicinal products in order to minimize the incidence of adverse effects. In short, API production must meet the legislatively established rules of good manufacturing practice, created to guarantee the highest quality and safety. Most of these substances are described by a further binding reference regulation known as a pharmacopoeia, whether European, American, Japanese, British or from elsewhere. Unlike manufacturing practices, which tell us "how" we should view APIs, pharmacopoeias tell us "what" the substance actually is and what its specifications are.
At Contipro, we observe the highest possible standards of product quality protection, borne out by periodic audits conducted by customers and, mainly, by state authorities. Our GMP and CEP certificates of conformity with the European Pharmacopoeia are proof that we meet all the requirements outlined above. The active substances we manufacture are of a constant quality guaranteed by trained QA/QC officers. We are continually introducing innovative outputs from a large base of R&D experts into the manufacture of our products in order to be able to deliver the purest, safest substances to customers like you.
