The Hong Kong Department of Health has given market expansion services provider DKSH a license for secondary packaging.

The license will allow the company to perform all secondary packaging activities, including labeling, relabeling, cartooning, re-cartooning or adding additional information.

It is only awarded to companies who demonstrate that they meet legal requirements and Good Manufacturing Practices guidelines. Alongside the packaging green-light, DKSH was also awarded a license to manufacture preparations of dangerous drugs.

DKSH vice president of healthcare Richard Holloway voiced his delight with the licenses, which although not yet a government requirement, look set to become so.

“Secondary packaging is a critical step in the value chain which may affect the quality and integrity of pharmaceutical products,”​ he said in a statement.

“We are glad to have full capabilities and to have gained accreditation to perform this service well before it is required by the government body.”
