The Standard Group of Companies are a leading supplier of equipment into the Pharmaceutical and Chemical industry.

A key and critically important factor, especially with the pharmaceutical industry is legislation.

In simple terms “Good manufacturing practice” (GMP) is the minimum standard that a pharmaceutical supplier must meet to be able to supply to pharmaceutical manufacturers. 

Two basic elements of GMP are: -

  • Consistent high quality
  • Appropriate to their intended use

Many acronyms are used in the pharmaceutical industry with 3 abbreviations being key for a successful pharmaceutical supplier, which will in turn give them the advantage of supplying a full key turnkey product into this sector.

These 3 elements are: -Schematic sampling dispensing sifting barrier isolator lr

  • IQ
  • OQ
  • PQ

The Standard Group can supply products with the above with quality documentation and the highest standard of checks..

What is IQ ?

IQ stands for Installation Qualification.

This is a documented process which will explain and verify the equipment has been installed to the agreed standards are process agreed at the start of the project.

Ths is the testing and validation of each component and feature of the equipment which includes:-Schematic Products barrier isolator 1

  • Temperature Control Systems
  • Overheating
  • Fan and motor speeds
  • Operational Signals
  • Servo Motors Accuracy
  • Pressure Switches
  • Level Switches
  • Pressure Control Systems

What is PQ

PQ is the Performance Qualification

Ths is very similar to the OQ, however these tests will have a load applied which will simulate normal working conditions in accordance with internal and necessary guidelines.
