Pharmline Inc., Florida, NY, announces the company will restart it operations in Shanghai, China, effective 1 April 2008 in order to ensure its highest food safety standards. Since the US has become justifiably concerned about importing ingredients from China, Pharmline has implemented the most rigid control of Quality Assurance and Vendor Compliance Monitoring The new unit will be headed by Mrs Fang Ping, who received her Master degree in environment engineering from the prestigious University of Nanjing University of Science & Technology. “The operation will be focused on quality assurance and vendor compliance issues,” said Dr. Chunlin Wang, V.P. of Quality Control at Pharmline. The company plans to conduct regular GMP audits of its top vendors, Environmental Audits and regular Web meetings with Vendor Quality Control departments to collaborate on analytical methodologies, HACCP and current issues of concern to the industry.
