Translation of Certificate of a Pharmaceutical Product (CPP) to export pharmaceutical products abroad

When pharmaceutical products move across countries, it is essential to be able to ascertain their safety, efficacy and quality. This is why the World Health Organisation set up a certification scheme for pharmaceutical products in 1975. Within this scheme, the Certificate of a Pharmaceutical Product (CPP) defines the status of a pharmaceutical product and its manufacturer in the exporting country. It is issued for single products only by the competent authority in the exporting country, in accordance with the requirements of the importing country. Pharmaceutical companies may need to present this certificate for the initial importation and thereafter, for updating records or as proof. The UK’s competent authority is the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

If your company regularly exports products abroad, or if you are seeking to supply your products in a new market, authorities in the destination country will require translated certificates for each product. A separate CPP is needed for different dosage forms and strengths of pharmaceutical products.
