At JET8, we offer high-quality and reliable shipping services for pharmaceutical raw materials (intermediates and active pharmaceutical raw materials (API)) in compliance with GMP/GDP standards. We provide innovative solutions for customers who require strict temperature control and security measures in pharmaceutical development, manufacturing, and distribution.

Compliant API Shipping with Various Countries' Regulations and Guidelines

Depending on the destination country, GMP compliance certification may be required for the export of pharmaceutical raw materials. Just like with the import and export of finished pharmaceutical products, the pharmaceutical authorities of each country have stringent regulations to protect the health of their citizens. Imports, in particular, undergo scrutiny. When exporting from Japan, it is crucial to adhere to the import and sales regulations of the destination country and make adequate preparations.
