BSI Launch Event: Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) certification

BSI Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Certification – Launch event on Monday, 26th June 2023 between 15:00 hrs – 16:30hrs (IST)

According to the World Health Organization, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been declared a top 10 global public health threat and is expected to get worse unless action is taken. It threatens to undermine the basis of modern medicine by rendering the antibiotics used to treat and prevent infections ineffective.

Resistance can come from many sources – BSI is working with the pharmaceutical industry to focus on the evolution of responsible manufacturing of antibiotics. Manufacturing waste from the production of antibiotics may contribute to the development of AMR in the environment unless emissions from waste streams are effectively controlled

BSI, in collaboration with the AMR Industry Alliance, will launch an industry antibiotic manufacturing certification scheme on 26 June 2023

This independent and impartial certification program is perfectly situated to serve as a mechanism for antibiotic manufacturers to demonstrate evolving best practice and compliance to the Antibiotic Manufacturing Standard. While government regulators have a role to play in promoting responsible manufacturing, the industry has shown its willingness to self-regulate by developing this manufacturing standard and independent certification scheme.

Companies including Centrient, Roche, Pfizer, Teva, Viatris, and Sandoz were participants in the pilot program and have helped provide technical expertise to shape the certification program.

  • Provide independent third-party assurance that your organization is minimizing the risk of waste emissions from manufacturing 
  • Prove that the industry can self-regulate the antimicrobial resistance topic through certification and external third-party independent assessments
  • Differentiate yourselves in healthcare systems tenders by showing your antibiotic products are independently certified by a trusted organization with a recognizable Mark of Trust

Who should attend?

  • Pharmaceutical manufacturers
  • Regulators
  • Government policy makers
  • Trade associations
  • Contract manufacturers
  • Hospital / healthcare systems sustainability procurement
