GAC Dubai raises its pharmaceuticals logistics game
GAC Dubai has been awarded the ISO 13485:2016 certification for medical devices management systems, demonstrating its ability to provide quality warehousing, distribution and value-added services of medical devices that meet the high standards of the sector and the regulations that govern it.
Certification comes after a stringent independent audit which confirmed the company’s compliance with the internationally recognised standard. The company has also been awarded a certificate of good pharmaceutical storage and distribution practices for medical stores by Dubai's health ministry, after a statutory audit. Only companies that have passed the audit and received such certification are permitted to conduct pharmaceuticals warehousing operations in the emirate.
GAC Dubai Contract Logistics operates 18,000 pallet storage slots for pharmaceutical products offshore in the Jebel Ali free-trade zone (JAFZ), plus a further 150,000 pallet storage slots dedicated to food and beverages, retail and FMCG clients in JAFZ, Dubai South and onshore at the Dubai Industrial Park.
