The three pharmaceutical companies of Armenia: "Farmatek", "Likvorа" and "Archimed" will shortly get GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certificates, chairman of the Union for Production and Import of Armenian Pharma Drugs, Samvel Zakaryan, told Arminfo correspondent.
He said that at present the government is determining if this certificate will be obligatory for the local market. However, without GMP certificate export of Armenian pharma drugs is impossible. "In case of availability of this standard, European countries recognize us like producers of the high quality pharma drugs", - he said.
The Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines were adopted in Armenia in Jan 2013 under a USAID project.
