CRAIGAVON, Northern Ireland, October 18, 2010 - Almac is once again pleased to announce the successful completion of an
inspection of its Clinical Services UK facility located in Craigavon by the
Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
The routine inspection, which took place over four days, from September
13th - September 16th, was conducted by a MHRA inspector who concluded that
the site continues to be compliant with EU Good Manufacturing Practices, with
no critical or major failures observed.
Commenting on the inspection, Paul O'Connor (Vice President, Quality),
"We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our inspection. These
successful results are a positive reflection of all the investment Almac has
made over the past few years in our facilities and recruitment of the best
employees, ensuring that we are a market leader and continue to deliver a
high quality service. Quality is at the core of our ethos - we have three
MHRA approved facilities globally, including our additional FDA assessed US
facilities in Audubon, Pennsylvania and Durham, North Carolina. The very high
standards of quality compliance will continue with our new $120 million North
American Headquarters in Souderton - scheduled to open during the autumn."
