Compliance and regulatory standards
Our manufacturing practices are conform to Medical Device Standards and International Regulations such as the MDR, if required GMP certified irrespective of their nature: contract development or life-cycle manufacturing. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) outline the minimum standards that drug delivery solution and combination product manufacturers must meet in their production processes. They also play a key role in harmonizing and co-ordinating regulatory expectations. At Nemera, our operations comply to these standards established by external health authorities and international harmonization organizations. Compliance to these standards helps us ensure product safety and quality.
This in turn, ensures patient safety and satisfaction. The following are part of GMP at Nemera: control, quality, safety & effectiveness. Furthermore, we are staying ahead in a rapidly changing world with our Lean approach and methodologies for process simplifications.
Along with GMP conformity, International Standardization Organizations also provide ISO guidelines for drug delivery device solution manufacturers like Nemera. Our Quality Management System (QMS) adheres to the ISO standards in place for medical devices (ISO 13485) , cleanrooms (ISO 14644), primary packaging (ISO 15378), environmental (ISO 14001) and energy management (ISO 50001) to name a few. Based on their location, our manufacturing sites adhere to local health authority regulations.
We monitor and continuously improve our quality management to ensure strong real-time performance. It is critical to sustain the performance as it has a direct impact on patient safety and customer experience.
