Quality management

For more than 30 years we have been providing services of the highest quality, as quality is our first priority.

The HWI group works under regulatory supervision in accordance with the provisions of GMP and GVP in pharmacovigilance. We consistently implement GMP and the associated provisions of the German Ordinance for the Production of Medicinal Products and Active Substances (AMWHV) and of the EU good manufacturing practice (GMP) guidelines.

Regular inspections every three years verify compliance with official requirements. We continuously adjust our quality-management system to the latest regulations and regularly gain additional professional skills from internal and external training.

We also collaborate with external experts and review our quality-management processes frequently to detect potential for improvement.

We view our customer audits as an opportunity to continuously develop our quality-management system and to discuss matters with quality officers of medium-sized companies and international corporations.
