And if you are operating within the United States of America reassure yourself that your specialist service provider is a well-established member of the Approval Agency. This is the body known to all compliant stakeholders within the USA to be an important player within the US Department of Transportation. In any event, the reassurance and compliance is of equal importance to stakeholders in the health services industry across the globe.
They are being catered for from the North American Continent. And there is at least one other known and important ISO compliant medical packaging and testing center strategically placed in another area of the world. The most important criteria in gaining certified approval to test, package and carry dangerous goods, or vital medical supplies (including pharmaceutical goods and/or medicines) is that a proven ability and record is given to the authorities to test and handle such goods.
Before certification is finally given, there must be evidence that the testing and packaging equipment utilized is efficiently and appropriately calibrated and effective in its autonomous contribution towards accurate testing and swift packaging. Just because sensitive and vital goods are swiftly packaged, handled and transported (or shipped) does not mean that there will be bracket creep allowing for error. The bodies that are mandated to give approval to the stakeholders will not allow this.
In this business, effective communications are vital. Agents will be required to collect relevant data from customers and relay these to their technicians. It is also essential to create as much awareness among those perceived to be unlikely customers on the importance of ensuring that their wholesale and retail goods are also ISO compliant. This simply makes good business sense and there is no risk of commercial reputations being unnecessarily damaged.
