Success in business is based on trust, especially in pharmaceuticals. By putting quality at the core of everything we do, Thermo Fisher Scientific has earned the trust of clients around the world—and those companies in turn have secured the trust of patients. Trust has been earned through regulatory compliance, exceptional Right First Time/On-Time performance, and safe and effective products. While our ability to generate time and cost efficiencies has earned us business from every corner of the industry, it is our uncompromising quality that continues to build our client relationships and strategic partnerships. Our approach is to pursue improvement in every functional area of the business, proactively seek out opportunities to prevent problems before they occur, and continuously examine and refine systems and processes. Our ultimate objective is for the pharmaceutical to be of the highest quality possible when it reaches the patient.
In an industry where quality is all-important, we welcome the opportunity to meet the high standards of our clients and regulatory bodies around the world. Since 2005, our facilities have undergone more than 2,600 regulatory and client inspections. Thermo Fisher Scientific has also had 33 Pre-Approval Inspections (PAIs) waived by the FDA in the past 10 years.
Pharmaceuticals, especially highly potent compounds, require strict adherence to regulations and safety practices. We are committed to the health and safety of our employees and the protection of the environment. We comply with evolving regulations and use progressive modernization to mitigate risk for people and the planet. Our company culture is one of prevention, compliance and improvement. We identify and adopt industry best practices, not only to promote safety, but also to protect against costly delays. We reinforce these efforts through continuous investments in the latest equipment and processes across our global network.
