PCI's production and control systems are based on the same requirements as for all U.S. drug manufacturers - cGMP's (current Good Manufacturing Practices). These systems provide for processes and procedures that control all of the inputs into manufacturing, which ensures that the output - products are of consistent quality and meet all customers requirements
Examples of some of PCI's processes and procedures include:
Processes for approval of new materials and components - this includes processes for approved vendors.
Specification system for all raw material, in-process materials (batches) and finished goods.
Processes/procedures that control all production documents/records. These processes include procedures for secure Master files, issuing production documents to the production department and maintaining lot files on finished goods.
Procedures that formalize processes for the receipt, approval and storage of all incoming materials.
Quality control procedures that provide for the disposition and release (or hold) of all in-process material, batches and finished goods.
