German accreditation and European inspection

Since 25 September 2013 InphA’s accreditation also covers the microbiological testing of medicinal products and active pharmaceutical ingredients. The following tests are being offered:

  • Sterility test (according to Ph. Eur. 2.6.1)
  • Microbiological examination of non-sterile products: microbial enumeration test (according to Ph Eur. 2.6.12)
  • Microbiological examination of non-sterile products: test for specified micro-organisms (according to Ph Eur. 2.6.13)
  • Microbiological examination of herbal medicinal products for oral use (according to Ph Eur. 2.6.31)

Our accreditation certificate is available here. Further information on our microbiological testing can be found here.

Additionally InphA in 2013 again successfully underwent an inspection by the European OMCL network. The audit attestation has been granted on 2 December 2013. The participation in this audit scheme on the one hand confirms the establishment of the ISO 17025 standard and on the other hand acknowledges the implementation of the guidelines of the European OMCL network.
