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


Besides the strengthening of mutual trust and international interaction at the level of regulatory entities, accompanying GMP inspection increases export potential, since the next steps for any potential sponsor after successfully gaining certification are the 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, when essential amendments are introduced into the Dossier of Registered Drug Products.
