How we keep medicines safe

medicine 2

The Pharmaceutical Programme tests a wide range of products against international pharmacopoeial (BP, Ph Eur, USP), or other requirements, to ensure on-going quality and safety. We screen and test for counterfeit medicines and products suspected of containing undeclared medicines.

We provide testing services to both local and international clients, and are the primary provider of therapeutic product testing for the Ministry of Health (Medsafe) as part of their role in the continuous monitoring of the safety of medicines on the New Zealand market.
