Vetter Development Service Rankweil successfully completes re-inspection
- Successful inspection completed at clinical site
- Inspectors were impressed with systems and processes
- Austrian site supports manufacturing and quality control of Human Investigational Medicinal Products
RAVENSBURG, Germany and RANKWEIL, Austria, November 09, 2023 / B3C newswire / -- Vetter, a leading global Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), has received the permanent Manufacturer’s Authorization for its clinical development site in Rankweil, Austria. Operational for nearly two years, the responsible national regulatory authority, the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) again inspected the site for issuance of a permanent Manufacturer’s Authorization. Before commissioning the site, the authority had already carried out an initial inspection at the end of 2021, which resulted in a temporary Manufacturer’s Authorization for two years, as is customary in Austria.
The AGES inspectors gained deep insights into Vetter’s methods of work at the site during the three-day inspection. The focus was on the verification of the processes and the documentation in the production and quality control as well as on the systems for quality assurance. The inspectors were impressed with the premises, systems and processes on site.
"We are very happy and proud of the result of this comprehensive inspection conducted by the AGES. Our state-of-the-art facility in Austria features structured and modern systems and processes and our staff members bring high expertise,” says Wolfgang Weikmann, Vetter’s Senior Vice President Quality. “This allows us to provide clinical trial materials of consistently high quality to our customers worldwide, helping to develop life-enhancing medication for patients in need.”
Vetter Development Service Rankweil represents the company’s European counterpart to its clinical manufacturing site near Chicago. “Our Austrian site allows us to further expand our capacity and service offering to our customer base in the crucial field of process development and clinical manufacturing of Phase I and II injectables,” says Dr. Claus Feussner, Vetter’s Senior Vice President of Development Service. “The site's successful re-inspection and the receipt of the permanent Manufacturer's Authorization is yet another important milestone in our strategic company development."
