    Wasserburg, Germany: – Pharmaceutical lactose specialist MEGGLE Excipients & Technology (MEGGLE) marks China’s Year of the Ox 2021 by taking a further step to show its commitment to the Chinese pharmaceutical market.

    MEGGLE has officially extended its product specifications to explicitly highlight compliance of the excipient with the Chinese Pharmacopoeia (ChP).

    Expanded testing regime

    The move required MEGGLE to institute new tests into its quality system, which were necessary to comply with ChP.

    The change gives Chinese and multinational companies easier access to MEGGLE excipients and corresponding documentation, providing significantly improved user convenience from a regulatory perspective.

    CDE listed

    MEGGLE has so far been able to place more than 30 of its excipients on the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA), formerly known as CFDA, Center for Drug Evaluation (CDE) platform.

    The CDE is responsible for technical review of all drug applications and listing is a prerequisite to the use of MEGGLE excipients in pharmaceutical drug manufacturing in China.

    More than ten of the MEGGLE excipients have been awarded “A” Status on the NMPA on this platform.

    Local support

    Furthermore, MEGGLE ‘s China Representative Office in Shanghai is capable of issuing appropriate Chinese language letters of authorization (LOAs) that are also required for incorporating MEGGLE products into drug registration and manufacturing in China.

    MEGGLE has been supporting the Chinese pharmaceutical market with its products and services for almost two decades. With the contribution of its representative office in China, headed by Dr. Yi Kang, local customers have been quickly and comprehensively served. Either technical or quality related queries have been followed up with full commitment, respecting local Chinese requirements.
