- All products at Merck, which are determined for human use are treated under GMP aspects.
International standards control the quality and safety of drugs and the substances used in their manufacture.
These rules and regulations, generally known as cGMP Guidelines, are valid throughout the world and are expected to be ultimately codified into a global standard. In addition to established cGMP guidelines for the manufacture of active substances, discussions are currently underway on corresponding regulations for excipients. At Merck KGaA, we participate actively in these policy forming discussions around the world.
