Securing product safety
Quality is not considered a duty, but rather a company-wide commitment to improve human and animal health. Our extensive quality controls ensure Vaccine Eggs of the highest quality to provide the best yields in your production process and to safeguard your products.
In order to secure the highest quality of Vaccine Eggs we have a comprehensive quality management system in place with defined standards and processes.
These standards meet or exceed the strictest requirements for the production of SPF Eggs found in the European Pharmacopoeia EP188.8.131.52.2 and the USDA VS Memorandum 800.65.
An excerpt of the European Pharmacopoeia
Our Quality Management Program consists of the following pillars:
- Providing support to internal and external customers
- Maintaining traceability through detailed and consistent documentation practices
- Promoting predictable performance by using well designed standard operating procedures
- Identifying and resolving quality issues quickly while focusing on preventative measures
- Continuously improving through training and efficacious change management policies
To complete the process, the following steps are also integrated into the Quality Management Program of VALO BioMedia:
- Policy definition and review
- Regulatory compliance
- Auditing of suppliers
- Inventory management
- Internal training and audit plan
- Quality concern investigation procedures
- Change control and document management processes
HACCP Concept for SPF Egg Production
In addition we have a HACCP System in place for the production of SPF Eggs that is integrated into our Quality Management Program. The HACCP concept is based on a study ordered and developed by NASA, the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force to avoid food-borne illnesses of astronauts.
The HACCP concept is a preventative quality control system to ensure the safety of food. With this concept the industrial production of food is monitored and controlled to minimize microbiological contamination. It protects consumer health by means of a hazard analysis and is based on standard global hygiene regulations. Its effectiveness is regularly audited and has been certified without interruption since 2004.
VALO BioMedia is already working in compliance with ISO 9001 and is in the process of obtaining the Certificate. As part of our regulatory compliance, all deliveries are accompanied by extensive country-specific information and documentation regarding the origin and health status of the source flocks as required by the destination country and/or our customers.
