Product Quality

We are focused on making high quality medicines that are available when patients need them.

We are committed to product quality and safety, as shown here at a Sligo, Ireland facility.

Providing the Highest Quality Products for Patients

We aim for the safe and efficient production of our medicines.

  • All of our manufacturing facilities adhere to strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) to safeguard quality and supply of our products.
  • Our sites are approved by their respective national health authorities, with many also receiving approvals by international health organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We ensure that products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate for their intended use and as required by the Market Authorization.
  • Our global product protection team constantly analyzes our supply chain to prevent counterfeit or diverted products from reaching patients.
  • Our product packaging includes overt and covert features to help patients clearly identify authentic products and help with authentication in testing labs.

Medicine when it’s needed

Our assurance of supply program is designed to help us to continue providing medicines even in unpredictable circumstances, such as natural disasters or surges in demand.

This includes identifying and qualifying backup suppliers, scanning the environment for potential risks, and scenario planning.

When Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in 2017, a high level of preparedness allowed us to maintain production at all three of our local plants with no impact to patients.
