EXCiPACT is off to a flying start in 2017

EXCiPACT can look back on a very successful start to 2017, marked by a healthy increase in the number of new certificates issued.

In the first quarter of the year, EXCiPACT issued 10 new certificates, a new record for the organization and further evidence that momentum is building behind the use of third-party certification against the EXCiPACT standard.

Even more recently, the Croda Japan K.K. Shiga factory was certified by SGS, one of EXCiPACT's internationally-recognised certification bodies, marking the first time that a certificate has been awarded to a Japanese facility.

The full list of certificates awarded so far this year – in the US, Europe, China, India and Japan - is as follows:

  • Croda Japan Shiga factory in Shiga-Ken, Japan
  • Croda Inc. sites in Mill Hall, Pennsylvania and in New Castle, Delaware
  • Chemische Fabrik Budenheim KG site in Budenheim, Germany,
  • Sudeep Pharma Pvt. Ltd. site in Vadodara, Gujarat
  • Carbagas site in Domdidier, Switzerland
  • Chemfield Cellulose Private Ltd site in Nagpur, India
  • Anhui Sunhere Pharmaceutical Excipients Co. Ltd site in Huainan, Anhere, China
  • Ashland Specialties France site in Alizay, France
  • KLK Emmerich GmbH's site in Düsseldorf, Germany
  • VWR Chemicals, LLC's site in Aurora, Ohio, USA
  • AMRESCO, LLC's site in Solon, Ohio, USA

EXCiPACT President Kevin McGlue said the first quarter performance indicates that the organizations plans are on track, particularly with regard to developing EXCiPACT on the international stage.

He also noted that the consultation period on the revision to the EXCiPACT standard is coming to a close (see our article here) and the project remains on course for the publication of the new version in the third quarter of 2017.
