QUAMED conducts audits of all type of suppliers (supply agencies, distributors, wholesalers and manufacturers). We also undertake local market assessments to help guide your purchases.

Audits of suppliers (supply agencies, distributors, wholesalers and manufacturers)

These audits are conducted using international standards such as Good Manufacturing Practices, Good Distribution Practices, as well as the WHO ‘Standard Quality Assurance System within Central Purchasing Centers’ (MQAS).
The audit results are presented in a standardized way to allow easy comparison between different potential suppliers and a graphical representation allows for a quick overview.

Example of graphical representation of MQAS audit result – 14 criteria evaluated on 5 levels.


Evaluation of local markets

Suppliers in a local market: To enable you to organise your local purchases in a given country and to select the suppliers offering the best level of guarantees, we can organise a series of technical visits of the potential suppliers that you preselected or that we select together (producers, distributors, wholesalers, importers …).

We will produce a report that details the results of the local market evaluations. The report includes recommendations that are are summarized in a table listing the preferred suppliers, the second choice, and suppliers that are not recommended, based on the level of their distribution / manufacturing practices.

For distributors, the report will include recommendations especially in regard to the sources of the medicines that they sell or distribute. A graphical representation assists with comparing suppliers and will allow you to make a decision. The results of these evaluations feed into the database.

Evaluation of produced files

Any file is reviewed using a defined protocol referring to internationally recognized standards. The results of the evaluation are presented in a standardized way establishing a 5-level score for the manufacturing site, the registration of the product, the specifications of the final product, the specifications of the raw materiels used, the packaging material, the stability and bio-equivalence studies (if applicable).
