ISO 15378 - Certification - Primary Packaging Materials for Medicinal Products

The ISO 15378 – Primary Packaging Materials for Medicinal standard was developed by stakeholders in the pharmaceutical sector to provide a quality management system (QMS) for suppliers of materials intended to be used as packaging for medicinal products. When you certify your operation against the ISO 15378 standard, you mitigate your risks especially related to contamination, mix-ups and errors. Further, you ensure your customers of the compliance of your QMS.

SGS provides reliable, independent ISO 15378 certification for your pharmaceutical packaging materials manufacturing operation. During your audit prior to certification we analyze your operation, identifying strengths and outlining the areas where improvement is necessary. 

SGS is a globally recognized leader in certification for the pharmaceutical sector. The SGS global network of auditors understand your manufacturing processes and the precise meaning of all aspects of the standard. The ISO 15378:2006 standard includes a number of important QMS guidelines  for primary manufacturers of glass, plastic, rubber, aluminum and other materials used for medicinal packaging, including:

  • Compliance to legal requirements
  • Identification, reduction and control of risks including contamination and manufacturing errors
  • Improved efficiency and cost-effectiveness in your operation
