Roquette, one of the world’s leading excipients manufacturers, is announcing a significant step forward in serving its customers with the award of the EXCiPACT™ certification.

SGS, one of the international auditors authorised to grant approval under this standard, audited and recommended Roquette’s site based in Lestrem, France.

EXCiPACT certification ensures top-level quality throughout the entire supply chain, and gives the customers access to the full documentation mandatory to the regulators.

"This certification is a new milestone in our commitment to customers" said Paul Smaltz, head of Roquette’s Pharma Global Business Unit. "Roquette wants to offer best-in-class services to its customers, and the EXCiPACT certification was a must-have to us. The implementation of quality and safety best practices as required by EXCiPACT offers our customers the possibility to significantly reduce the number of audits. It means for them cost and time savings, while enjoying premium quality products."
