WE STAND FOR QUALITY AND SAFETY
SANTO cares about the quality of its product at each stage of development, manufacturing, storage, distribution, and sale. Historically speaking we were the first ones in the domestic pharmaceutical field who passed two independent certifications for the compliance with international and Kazakhstani quality standards of ISO series 9001:2000.
Since 2008, The Company SANTO has begun the transition for international standards of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Kazakhstan. The Company was one of the first domestic manufacturers, which actively started to introduce this standard. The evidence of transition from the product quality control system to a production quality assurance system according to international GMP standards is the availability of GMP certificates for the production site manufacturing injection solutions and infusions, for the production site aseptically filling antibiotic powders that are classified in the cephalosporin group (Department No. 2 for aseptic filling of antibiotic powders), for the production site aseptically filling antibiotic powders of the beta-lactam group (carbapenems), aminoglycosides and polypeptide antibiotics (Department No. 2 for aseptic filling of antibiotic powders), for the production site manufacturing oral solid medicinal products, for the site manufacturing oral liquid medicinal products, and also GDP certificate for the pharmaceutical warehouse.
