Audits with EXCiPACT certification

blue inspection GmbH performs audits according to the current EXCiPACT standards: The basic requirement to achieve an EXCiPACT conform certification is a quality management system according to ISO 9001. Based thereupon we perform a professional and independent audit of the GMP or GDP procedures. The subsequent system analysis determines and assesses the management system in question with all corresponding processes, regulations and documents in form of a system audit.
If all requirements are met, we issue a certificate with EXCiPACT seal which will be valid for three years. In the following two years we will perform surveillance audits. After three years a re-certification is due.
