Non-conformance Remediation ProjectLearn more

Following a non-conformance identified during the quality control of a manufactured batch of sterile products, ALTEN supported a pharmaceutical company to identify the root cause and implement corrective and preventive measures. The scope of the investigation was to identify production and degradation-related impurities.

After defining the investigation method, we analysed the production conditions and quality control measures & methods. We then identified, implemented and evaluated the efficiency of corrective actions, and proposed additional control measures to detect the risk of impurity entries.

Our understanding of the product principles and our expertise in the market standards enabled us to deliver efficient and long-term actions. Our work significantly helped the customer to get impurity-free and marketable products.
