Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) Pharma Centre at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport has been awarded Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification. At the start of 2020, the Centre, part of a multi-million Euro investment by WFS in global pharmaceutical handling facilities, also achieved IATA CEIV Pharma certification.
The GDP audit and certification process by independent auditing specialists TÜV confirmed the facility’s temperature management capabilities and assessed and approved WFS’ pharma policy, including its internal auditing procedures, risk assessment and corrective/preventive measures, and critical supplier list.
Yann Favre, newly-appointed Manager Pharma at the WFS Centre in Paris, said: “As the world’s largest air cargo handler, WFS is already very actively involved in the safe and compliant handling of pharmaceutical shipments and medical devices across our international network. Gaining certifications for both IATA CEIV and GDP for our Pharma Centre in Paris means we have achieved the highest respective global standards recognised by the air cargo and pharmaceutical industries. This supports our objective to be the world’s leading air cargo handler for pharma shipments in terms of compliance and our able to safeguard product integrity.”
As the only dedicated pharma handling facility owned by a ground handler at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG), the Centre already handles over 8,000 tonnes of temperature-controlled shipments a year for nearly 40 airline customers. WFS expects the Center to play an important role in the handling and distribution of Covid-19 vaccines for the population of France once these shipments begin.
