Importing

COLCA MS is authorized by the EMA (European Medicines Agency) to import experimental and commercial medicines into France and Europe. Special COLCA MS regulatory and logistics expertise to streamline your market access!

Storage

Our premises are designed to handle the storage of pharmaceutical products under five distinct temperature ranges: 4 controlled-temperature areas [-70°C-80°C], [-15°C-25°C], [+2°C+8°C], [+15°C+25°C], plus one at room temperature. Our pharmaceutical warehouse has 450 palette spaces available where we continually monitor temperatures and hygrometry.

Storage and distribution

COLCA MS stores, prepares and ships controlled-temperature therapeutic units to France, Europe and the entire world. We handle reviewing import/export documentation for submission to the authorities, and guarantee “end-to-end” temperature oversight.

Secondary packaging

Secondary or outer packaging is the packaging enclosing the medication. Labelling of the secondary packaging specifically indicates the name of the medication, dosage, qualitative and quantitative composition of actives per dosage unit, pharmaceutical form, special warnings/precautions, manufacturing batch number, expiry date, and name and address of the marketing authorization bearer. Under controlled temperature conditions we manage the therapeutic units’ packaging, on-demand and on-order packaging, unwrapping operations, shelf life extensions, as well as the sorting, return, serialization and aggregation of commercial products.

Batch certification

During this final step of pharmaceutical production, COLCA MS engages the responsibility of its Official Acting Pharmacist in strict compliance with pharmaceutical regulations and legislation.

Serialization and aggregation

This system requires marking each box of medicine with a unique identifier (Data Matrix format) when it is distributed, as well as uploading all the box codes into a central database. Each code will then be scanned at the time of dispensing and will be compared with those recorded in the central data base to verify whether the medicine is authentic or a fake. COLCA MS oversees operations of serialization and aggregation of commercial products. It also manages commissioning and decommissioning of therapeutic units.

Training

COLCA MS designs and offers personalized training on the transport of medicines and distribution of healthcare products as applicable to your operations. Among our training pathways: Good Distribution Practices (GDP) of Drugs for Human, or Veterinary Use, or Raw Materials for Pharmaceutical Use (pharmaceutical raw materials or API).
