Risk in the Life Science supply chain is inevitable.
It’s not a matter of if your company is going to manage risk, it’s a matter of how, and more importantly, how well.
In terms of potential risk, the packaging and labelling process is one of the most vulnerable elements of a product’s life cycle. The risks, ranging from incorrect or incomplete product information to translation errors or incorrect specifications and versions being used, all share the human element as the consistent point of failure.
Any of these issues can lead to a regulatory breach, a delay in getting a product to market, a recall, or even a critical consequence for the patient. And while the packaging process is designed to identify, eliminate, and correct any potential issues, it is itself subject to the law of unintended consequences, meaning the process itself could cause new defects to be created.
Facing into this scenario, emerging & small pharma businesses looking either to enter the space or continue to flourish in it, need to seize upon any advantage they can get.
“The challenges small pharma companies are facing are clear but daunting,” explained Perigord’s Chief Operations Officer, Suzanne Ivory.
“Foremost amongst them are deciding what processes to put in place; how to meet evolving validation and compliance requirements; and ensuring pharma packaging regulations are adhered to, and will continue to be met in the future. Managing these factors effectively and improving efficiencies can give companies a competitive edge.”
GLAMS Q can provide that edge.
