Our analysis and certification activities for imported medicines

Movianto manages the entire supply chain for pharmaceutical products and has a department specialised in batch certification. This is an essential step in getting your imported pharmaceutical products onto the European market.

Movianto provides import, analysis and certification services for human and veterinary products throughout the European market, thanks to the status of some of its sites in France as pharmaceutical establishments.

To enable distribution on the European market, Movianto’s quality control laboratory analyses imported pharmaceutical products.

Additionally, Movianto has a dedicated batch certification service. Certification plays a vital role in ensuring that imported pharmaceutical products can be released on the European market in compliance with current pharmaceutical regulations (annexes 16 and 21 of the Good Manufacturing Practices).

Movianto manages the end-to-end distribution chain for medicines, from end of production by manufacturers outside the European Union to distribution. This is made possible by its interconnected activities as logistics provider, operator and certifier.

Certification of batches

The batch certification procedure is used to ensure that lots are released throughout the European market in compliance with the marketing authorisation dossier. More than 1,300 batches are certified each year by Movianto’s team of pharmacists and quality managers.

Prior to certification by an authorised pharmacist, a physico-chemical and microbiological analysis of products manufactured outside the European Union is required. This analysis can be conducted by our quality control laboratory.

The certification process includes :

  • Drawing up technical agrements(upstream work with the laboratory)
  • Verification of compliance between the product manufacturing master and the marketing authorisation file, including a regulatory review of the product
  • Analysis of deviations and out-of-specification investigations
  • Verification of transport data
  • Checking packaging artworks(ADC)
  • Verification of physico-chemical and microbiological analysis certificates
  • Administrative release

Product quality review

Every year, Movianto undertakes a product quality review for each pharmaceutical product for which it acts as UE releaser. This review records all the events that have occurred at the manufacturer outside the EU and at Movianto for a product during the defined period. It meets the requirements of GMP chapter 1 and annex 21, thus providing our laboratory customers with a transparent overview.

Our team keeps close to the field: audit of a manufacturing site outside the EU

Movianto can also offer an audit service for manufacturing sites to qualify them for the market roll-out of a pharmaceutical product, or to carry out routine audits. This way, our team works directly with producers to ensure the smooth management of our laboratory customers’ products.

In January 2024, part of the Movianto team travelled to conduct an audit of a manufacturing site.
