Quality Control

Quality, Excellence, and Drug Safety are the core values of the Quality Control Division at Arwan Pharmaceutical Industries Lebanon s.a.l..  Quality Control is emphasized at all stages of production, starting with the selection of raw material suppliers through to the safe distribution of finished drugs to end users. This is achieved through: 
  • Inspection, testing, monitoring and release of raw and packaging materials, and bulk, in-process and finished drug products.
  • Limiting selection of raw materials to those with referenced pharmacopeia, for use in the manufacturing of Arwan products.  
  • Microbial environmental monitoring during all phases of production to ensure that product safety and efficacy remain unaltered.
The Quality Control Division at Arwan implements accelerated and continuous effective training for its personnel through providing a range of Learning and Development (L&D) Programs.
