CPL Completes Successful Virtual Health Canada Audit

Contract Pharmaceuticals Limited Canada (CPL), a Health Canada and US FDA inspected manufacturer of liquid and semi-solid prescription and regulated OTC products, has successfully completed a virtual cGMP audit of its manufacturing facility by Health Canada.

Since the onset of the global pandemic, CPL has focused on keeping our employees safe while also continuing to deliver product for our customers.  One innovation was to create a 360° virtual tour that “walks” our customers and regulators through our facilities and allows them to follow material flow from raw materials through to the finished product.

We are thankful that we have been able to meet our commitments to our employees by keeping them safe and to our customers by ensuring the uninterrupted delivery of product and services,” said Paige.
