  • Safety: the mission of the organization is first and foremost designed to protect patients, and patients will continue to benefit as the consortium further enhances the security of the supply chain and improves the quality of our products.
Regulatory Bodies
  • Time savings: with improved security and quality, regulatory bodies are able to focus their limited resources on other areas which are of higher risk to the public health.


Pharmaceutical Drug product Manufacturers
  • Protection of brand image: counterfeit and falsified medicines can tarnish a brand’s image, resulting in a decrease of consumer confidence and sales.
  • Improved quality: improving quality of raw materials, components, excipients and active pharmaceutical ingredients and how they are stored and distributed will
    • reduce rejects, scrap, and investigations
    •  improve cycle times
    • lead to reduced inventories
    • subsequently reduce costs.
  • Reduction in audit burden: the shared audit program reduces the audit burden to the pharmaceutical drug product manufacturer and allow these resources to be redeployed to other quality efforts, such as working with their suppliers.     


  • Reduction in audit burden:  by replacing individual audits from pharmaceutical companies with a few thorough and broad shared audits, the supplier will be able to reduce the burden of audits and their costs
  • Reduction in administrative costs: the use of the standardized consortium Pre-Audit Questionnaire, Quality Agreements and Certificates of Analysis can significantly reduce administrative burden. This makes automation simpler and faster, thus reducing their overall costs
