Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has certified Capsugel’s (Greenwood, SC) Licaps liquid-fill production facility meets its regulatory requirements, the company announced on August 7.

“The Australian GMP code is very thorough because it covers all medicines and is highly respected by many regulatory authorities around the world,” said Robert Whitelaw, director of sales, marketing, and business development for Capsugel’s Americas region.

To obtain the certification, the company demonstrated its compliance with Australian good manufacturing practices for medicinal products, Whitelaw said. The certification should enable marketers to expand into the Australian market and in other regions that recognize TGA certification.

“In conjunction with the growing demand for products that utilize the Licaps delivery system, our customers can now more readily access important global markets,” added Whitelaw. “Certainly, our experience is that the important benefits of the Licaps delivery system, which include heightened consumer preference and improved bioavailability, address global needs.”
