Pharmaceutical certifications


In order to obtain the pharmaceutical certifications known as, ICH Q7 and WHO (World Health Organization) GMP, a company would need to prove they have the processes and procedures in place to consistently produce products that meet predefined safety and quality standards for the global supply chain. ICH Q7 is one of the highest pharmaceutical accreditations that can be given to an extraction facility and ensures compliance with international regulatory standards.

The WHO GMP certification is universally accepted and recognized by more than 100 countries including Canada, the US, the UK, and Australia.* It involves guidelines that play an important part in defining national regulations for pharmaceutical products. Ultimately, manufacturers receive this certification in compliance with regulatory guidelines and quality control.
