GMP-certified marine pharmaceutical equipment
According to the Singapore Poison Regulations, pharmacies providing offshore and ship supply services are required to practise good manufacturing practices (GMP), which Princeton is now doing.
Product recall (from vessels) is one of the GMP requirements. Princeton requests the vessel name be furnished in the event of:
- The manufacturer wanting to recall their products due to manufacturing defects
- Drug withdrawal or cancellation of product licence by local authority and / or World Health Organization (WHO)
Product recall requires tracing of product name, batch number, vessel name and contacts. Ideally these should be kept as computerised data.
Marine pharmaceutical equipment manufacturing, receiving, re-packing and labelling
At Princeton Pharmacy our manufacturing, receiving, re-packing and labelling activities are checked by supervisors, and then subsequently by pharmacists, in order to strive towards 100% accuracy as specified by the WHO. Furthermore, all these activities are documented for future reference. Most importantly, our products are bar-coded and scanned before delivery to ensure the correct items are being supplied.
Our products’ premises and records are subject to inspection by poison inspectors from Singapore’s Health Science Authority (HSA). Besides the above, Princeton Pharmacy also meets the below-mentioned GMP requirements and has the capability to meet any future regulatory requirements and customer needs.
- Re-packing activities to be performed in a clean room
- Medicinal products to be stored in a 24hr air-conditioning room with temperature monitored and recorded
- Cold items to be kept in a pharmaceutical refrigerator with temperatures monitored and recorded
- No recycled packaging material to be used
