With this successful assessment, BioPharma received a status of Compliance valid through to the 1st of January 2021.

This assessment is one of the first steps in the prequalification process when submitting a finished pharmaceutical product (FPP) as an Expression of Interest for Product Evaluation (EOI). EOIs are issued by WHO, by therapeutic area, following consultation with WHO disease programmes and/or clinical specialists.
