Clarity Pharma awarded Home Office Controlled Drugs license

Clarity Pharma, a prominent UK headquartered distribution partner servicing mid-market pharmaceutical companies around the world, has announced the granting of its Home Office Controlled Drugs license. This is an attractive addition to Clarity’s range of services for both existing and new clients.


“Due to COVID-19 there was a delay in obtaining a compliance inspection as virtually no Home Office inspections took place. We are excited to announce that an on-site license, valid for one year has now been issued,” Mark Simpson, GM & RP ‑ Distribution & Quality Services said. “During the audit it was determined that Clarity’s facilities, procedures and security measures are adequate to allow licensing to store Schedule 2, which includes products such as diamorphine, to Schedule 5 Controlled drugs, including codeine and morphine.”


The impressive warehousing capacity includes a state-of-the-art controlled drug vault and 578ft2 of controlled drugs space.


The facility also boasts excellent security with 24-hour CCTV and a direct-to-police alarm system. It is fully compliant with good distribution practices and MHRA. All the prescribed schedule drugs are fully secured behind a two-ton safe door. The vault itself carries an independent alarm, vibration sensors and requires dual ID to access. A diesel backup generator can maintain full operation 24/7, 365 days a year.


“The issuing of this licence is further evidence of our focus on supplying industry leading facilities with these products. The ability to offer a full suite of ambient, chilled and controlled drugs storage under one roof, coupled with our dedicated telesales team, will assist in pushing products into the primary healthcare space, which means that we can offer an unrivalled service,” Simpson points out.


With the lucrative UK market becoming more challenging to penetrate post-Brexit, customers are looking for industry experts to help them access the UK and navigate the registration process. To be able to find all of this in addition to gaining access to a ready-made infrastructure on offer from Clarity, means that even the smaller and aspirational entrants can be confident of being successful.
