Food and Drug Administration is responsible for supervising food and drug registration in the United States. It is FDA’s task to protect public health in the USA. FDA poses comparatively high requirements to the quality standards of the production of pharmaceuticals such as the GMP certificate. FDA reviews the fulfillment of the requirements to the manufacture as well as the company facilities based on the legal terms and regulations of the Code of Federal Regulation (CFR), a highly detailed and strict body of rules. FDA reviews pharmaceutical enterprises in Germany which import pharmaceuticals into the USA. Lacking an accordingly positive outcome renders importation impossible.
Authorised Economic Operator full (AEO F)
Increasing globalization and the changing international security situation have caused the World Customs Organization (WCO) to develop a framework of standards to secure and facilitate global trade (SAFE) and so warrant an effective risk management in customs authorities. Objective is to effectively protect global delivery chains from the manufacturer of goods up to the end consumer, in particular with goods trade across borders. The AEO certificate is an international quality mark. It focusses on subjects meant to facilitate and secure customs regulations. In order to meet these requirements an enterprise has to fulfill appropriate security standards to warrant the protection of goods. Legal requirements mainly arise from article 5a customs code and article 14a – 14x customs code executive order.
