Even though the standards for production and quality control are mostly unified at the global level, international inspections contribute to a more effective and open collaboration, experience exchange and a unified system of quality, considering a variety of approaches and lack of trust among the regulators from different countries. Following the trend, OCT offers its assistance in accompanying GMP inspection and certification to the foreign sponsors.


Besides strengthening of mutual trust and international interaction at the level of regulatory entities, accompanying GMP inspection increases the export potential, since the next steps for any potential sponsor after successfully passing the certification are registration of the drug and its launch into the local market. Obtaining the Russian GMP-Certificate is also necessary for foreign manufacturers whose drug products are already registered and circulate in Russia in case of making any essential variations into the Dossier of registered drug product.
