BPA FREE / vials 

BPA is used in plastic bottles and containers to strengthen the plastic. BPA is a chemical component present in polycarbonate plastic used in the manufacture of certain beverage containers and many food and beverage can liners. BPA-based plastic bottles are generally clear and tough. In cans, BPA-based liners form a barrier between the food and the can surface that prevents corrosion of the can and migration of metal into the food. People are exposed to low levels of BPA because very small amounts may migrate from the food packaging into foods or beverages. The chemical has been associated with a range of human ailments, including cancer, diabetes, irregular brain development in children, and reproductive issues. 

GMP / vials

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. GMP covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises, and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. This system provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process - every time the unicadoses® are made.

ISO 9001 / ingredients 

ISO 9001 is the international standard for creating a Quality Management Systems (QMS), published by ISO (the International Organisation for Standardisation). ISO 9001 had to be agreed upon by a majority of member countries so that it would become an internationally recognised standard, which means it is accepted by a majority of countries worldwide. An ISO 9001 definition would be that this standard provides the QMS requirements to be implemented for a company that wants to create all of the policies, processes, and procedures necessary to provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory needs and improve customer satisfaction. All ingredients used in our product are ISO 9001 certified.

ISO 14001 / vials

ISO 14001 is just one of the over 23,000 standards that have been put forward by the ISO since its formation in 1947. They are part of a family of standards designed for organizations that wish to decrease pollution and waste by introducing an environmental management system. As with all ISO standards, the ISO 14001 is not a specific set of instructions to be narrowly executed by the participating firm. Rather, it is a set of guidelines and standards that must be tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of the organization in question.

ISO 15378 / vials

ISO 15378 specifies quality management system requirements for primary packaging manufacturers in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, and benchmarks their ability to consistently deliver safe and reliable packaging. Primary packaging comes in direct contact with medicinal products, and packaging materials include aluminium, containers/components, films, foils, glass, laminate containers, plastics and rubber. Suppliers of medicinal primary packaging must demonstrate the quality of their production process through their implementation of the quality management system (QMS) and good manufacturing practices (GMP).

RvA / bottling

Each member state of the European Union has a national accreditation body. In the Netherlands it is the RvA. The primary task consists of accrediting and renewing the accreditations of conformity-assessment bodies: laboratories, inspection bodies, certification bodies and verification bodies. This is to ensure that trust in the quality of products and services is genuinely justified. RvA is a private organisation. In 2010 the Dutch government appointed the RvA as the national accreditation body based on European Regulation 765/2008. Since then the RvA has become an independent government agency that answers to the Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate. As an independent organisation and independent government agency the RvA is a non-profit organisation.

ISO 22000 / bottling

ISO 22000 is a Food Safety System which is outcome focused providing requirements for any organisation in the food industry with objective to help to improve overall performance in food safety. These standards are intended to ensure safety in the global food supply chain. 

The Food Safety Certification requirements provide a rigorous system to manage food safety risks and provide safe products for use by companies in the food industry.

This allows your customers to have confidence in your food safety program and know that you have a rigorous food safety system in place.

ISO 22000 / processing

This certification ensures that all food safety risks have been identified and are strictly controlled from processing to packaging, following stringent safety, hygiene and health standards.

ISO 22000 standard has allowed the company to evaluate and demonstrate its products' conformity in terms of food safety, as well as to guarantee the effective monitoring of the relative risk factors.

This certification also bears witness to company commitment to ensuring maximum food safety in full compliance with the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility and the Sustainability Report.

HACCP / ingredients

Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) is an internationally recognized method of identifying and managing food safety related risk and, when central to an active food safety program, can provide your customers, the public, and regulatory agencies assurance that a food safety program is well managed. 

HACCP is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product. 

HALAL / ingredients

Muslims have historically followed highly varied practices in regard to foods, especially meat, poultry, and fish

The pig is one of the few animals universally considered haram (opposite of halal).

Other universal prohibitions include the consumption of carrion, blood, and animals killed by means other than exsanguination.

Alcohol is also considered haram, although the interpretation of how much alcohol can be consumed has historically varied.

KOSHER / ingredients

Kosher is the name that Jews give to the laws about the kind of food that they may eat. Their holy books specify certain kinds of food that are all right to eat, and that other kinds should not be eaten.

The Kosher laws say that products classified as meat must not be eaten in the same meal with dairy products. Fish, fruit, and vegetables are considered neutral, called pareve, and may be eaten with either meat or dairy meals. Jews who "keep kosher" have separate utensils for meat and dairy foods, and wait a number of hours after eating one type of food before eating the other type.

The meat of some animals may not be eaten at all. Animals whose meat may be eaten must be killed in a special, careful way by a religiously trained slaughterer. Meat that is not fit to eat is called treif.
