Origin Packaging has received confirmation that the ISO Board of Certification approved Origin’s ISO 15378 certification.

The ISO: 15378 standards are specifically for suppliers of pharmaceutical primary packaging. Origin’s Pharmaceutical Packaging,Distribution and Innovation Centre and team was subjected to a comprehensive auditing process involving a multiple day inspection.

This included evaluating GMP trained operators, the supplier approval process, change controls, quality assessments and release.

Origin invested substantially to achieve this pharmaceutical recognised standard, and identifies with GMP principles and specifies requirements for a quality managed supply chain applicable to primary packaging materials for medicinal products.

This is a key achievement for Origin as it is consistent with the commitment to ‘bring healing home’ and underpins their clients’ own mission.

Origin managing director Keith Wade said: "Achieving the ISO 15378 certification further differentiates Origin Pharma Packaging and reinforces our position of leading Hybrid Packaging Partner.

"From design through to supply of primary packaging in the pharmaceutical industry, we continue to strengthen our processes to ensure they match pharmaceutical standards.

"Eventually we are contributing to, improving and saving lives."

Origin Packaging is an expert in supply chain management and new product development (leading in child safety) for the pharmaceutical primary packaging market. Origin is based in Melton, UK, and works strategically across Europe with major license holders and contract manufacturing organisations.
