About us

Over the past decade Blue has proven its outstanding experience in more than 1,000 audits. Our auditors are all highly qualified pharmaceutical professionals. The majority of them looks back on more then 15 years business and audit experience and has a PhD in a relevant field. Our auditors are regularly invited to take part in panel discussions and to share their professional competence.

Our audit reports fulfill regulatory requirements and demonstrate the GMP compliance of the audited suppliers. Global supply chains are increasingly complex and involve many different parties such as raw material suppliers, manufacturers, logistics providers and national regulatory bodies.

Besides being contracted directly for on-site audits from life science companies, Blue is also recognized as a competent service provider for shared audits. Furthermore, Blue is an accredited EXCiPACT certification body. Thanks to our longstanding international experience we are intensely familiar with the individual requirements and particularities of authorities worldwide.

Accredited third-party auditor

As a third-party auditor, Blue is accredited to ISO standard ISO/IEC 17020 for “inspections of excipient and active pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturers for pharmaceutical products and determination of the conformance with international GMP rules”. The independence, confidentiality and impartiality of our third-party auditors is monitored by the German Accreditation Body (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle, DAkkS).

The excellent quality standard that accreditation confirms, includes among other measures  a mandatory training schedule for all our auditors including retrainigs every year.
