Focus on ethical, medical and scientific standards

Man­u­fac­tur­ers of safe and high-qual­i­ty phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts world­wide rely on our long-stand­ing knowl­edge. In order to ensure the legal­ly com­pli­ant qual­i­ty of our cus­tomers’ prod­ucts, we con­sis­tent­ly keep an eye on the applic­a­ble stan­dards of fol­low­ing institutions:

Inter­na­tion­al Coun­cil for Har­mon­i­sa­tion of Tech­ni­cal Require­ments for Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals for Human Use (ICH)

IPEC Europe

Euro­pean Direc­torate for the Qual­i­ty of Med­i­cines and Health Care (EDQM)

Euro­pean Med­i­cines Agency (EMA)

Euro­pean Commission

Contact us now

Thomas Raab and the Phar­ma team sup­ports you with tech­ni­cal know-how and finds tai­lor-made solu­tions for your prod­uct idea. Also ask for detailed infor­ma­tion about spec­i­fi­ca­tionssafe­ty data sheets or mate­r­i­al sam­ples.

Supplier qualification as an integrated process

As part of the qual­i­fi­ca­tion process of our sup­pli­ers, we car­ry out appro­pri­ate audits and ensure that require­ments are met. Even after suc­cess­ful qual­i­fi­ca­tion, com­pli­ance with the reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments for phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals is reg­u­lar­ly assessed. Our inte­grat­ed process ensures that all changes at the sup­pli­er that could have an impact on GMP sta­tus, man­u­fac­tur­ing or test para­me­ters, are checked and approved before implementation.

MAGNESIA makes the difference

MAGNESIA not only offers excel­lent addi­tives, active ingre­di­ents and excip­i­ents, but also a com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice that our long-term cus­tomers par­tic­u­lar­ly appre­ci­ate. Qual­i­ty man­age­ment, doc­u­ment man­age­ment and the nec­es­sary cer­ti­fi­ca­tions and audits of sup­pli­ers and prod­ucts are an inte­gral part of our ser­vice. Furthermore

fixed con­tact per­sons make the coop­er­a­tion a real part­ner­ship for both sides, which ben­e­fits from work­ing hand in hand. In short: We think along with you, and the up-to-date­ness of the doc­u­ments required by qual­i­ty man­age­ment is proac­tive­ly provided,

one of our suc­cess prin­ci­ples is called “trans­paren­cy”. We are hap­py to com­ply with the request of our man­u­fac­tur­er part­ners to dis­close the ori­gin of sub­stances and mate­ri­als ordered,

you will receive already reg­is­tered prod­ucts that can be instant­ly used as active ingre­di­ents in your prod­ucts. We would also be hap­py if you involve us in new devel­op­ments as ear­ly as pos­si­ble. Your ben­e­fit: New prod­ucts will be cer­ti­fied and appro­pri­ate sup­pli­ers will be qual­i­fied by us. So you are well pre­pared for pro­duc­tion phase and mar­ket entry

seam­less mon­i­tor­ing of the sup­ply chain is guar­an­teed, in par­tic­u­lar to meet our due dili­gence oblig­a­tions as min­er­al trad­er and to make the pro­cure­ment process and stor­age as trans­par­ent as possible.

short deliv­ery times are a cru­cial fac­tor for our cus­tomers. We, there­fore, either use our own ware­house for stock­ing pur­pos­es or a suit­ably qual­i­fied and mon­i­tored exter­nal ware­house keeper,

MAGNESIA, as a reli­able part­ner, safe­guards the intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights of your prod­ucts. We treat your trade secrets with absolute con­fi­den­tial­i­ty and the pro­tec­tion of cus­tomer data is one of our values.
