Logistic Excellence

Discover DENK PHARMA transport excellence According to the European Good distribution practice (GDP) Guidelines, medicines have to be obtained from a licensed supply chain and are consistently stored, transported and handled under suitable conditions, as required by the marketing authorization or product specification. We transport our high quality products worldwide via air, ship and road. Our products are delivered to different climate areas including high temperature and humidity. We ensure that our products are transported correctly, so that we always deliver best German quality. To make sure that the temperature stays within a certain range during transport, we use temperature logger. Our temperature logger is a portable measurement instrument to record the temperature during transport over a defined period of time of our products.

Pharmacovigilance

Pharmacovigilance (PV), also known as Drug Safety, aims to enhance patient care and patient safety in relation to use of medicines. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) PV is defined as the science and activities relating to:

  • The detection,
  • understanding &
  • prevention of adverse effects or any other drug-related problem.

PV is a continuously risk-benefit monitoring and the initiation of necessary actions.

  • Collection + evaluation of pharmacovigilance relevant cases
  • Reporting of side effects and abuses (spontaneous cases + literature reports)
  • Literature research
  • Declaration of all product details to EMA authorities
  • Issue of PSUR (periodic safety update report)

 

For Denk Pharma German quality and recall regulation are not just applied to Germany and Europe but worldwide! 

  • Continuously risk-benefit monitoring
