PIC/S represents both the Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention (PIC) and the Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC Scheme) operating in parallel in the field of GMP. Licensed pharmaceutical manufacturers in Hong Kong are only required by the government to upgrade to PIC/S standard in 2015.
"In order to differentiate ourselves in the keen competition of the Hong Kong healthcare market, we have a strong emphasis on our value added services. It is our pleasure to share that DKSH Business Unit Healthcare in Hong Kong is the first Market Expansion Services provider accredited by SGS to fulfill PIC/S, the highest GMP standard for secondary packaging," said Richard Holloway, vice president, Business Unit Healthcare, DKSH Hong Kong. "I am sure this would bring further potential and opportunities to us in the local healthcare market."
