Built on the experience and expertise that IDA has accumulated over the years, our quality assurance system spans the entire supply chain from the manufacturing of raw materials to the delivery products to our customers. Our stringent quality assurance ensures consistency in every batch.
Our quality assurance system is based on risk assessment of production sites, product dossier, past performance and safety and efficacy of the product. After a manufacturing site and a specific product have been approved, IDA Foundation subjects them to a continuous verification and monitoring process.
This thorough process guarantees that IDA will never supply substandard products. Besides, our customers never risk buying counterfeit medicines.
To ensure that the quality standards are met according to agreed requirements, IDAs Quality Affairs department is responsible for the following tasks:
Assessment of dossiers of each product to assure safety and efficacy
Design comprehensive labels and leaflets meeting international standards
Inspect and test batches before release
Further, the quality department consists of two specialised independent teams:
1. internal and external auditors
2. regulatory affairs specialist handling registration of IDA products
IDA Foundation is certified for Good Manufacturing Practice, Good Distribution Practice, ISO 9001:2008 and AEO. This means, amongst other things, that all procedures are documented. The documented method of working and the actual way of working is checked through internal reviews as well as externally by a certifying agency. Each year IDA Foundation is audited by the Dutch Ministry of Health.
