We conduct the manufacturing and quality control efficiently and effectively by putting risk management into practice.
For each production batch, the manufacturing and quality control records are reviewed carefully, and implementation of change control, deviation management and validation ensured before the final judgment is made on whether the products are suitable for release.
We monitor through the product quality review whether the products are being manufactured in a properly controlled state. In addition, we investigate necessity of follow-up activities such as improvement or others, and aim to improve the product quality by achieving the improvement when necessary.
