RIOgaleao Cargo has renewed its IATA CEIV Pharma certification, having been the first been recognised in 2016.
When RIOgaleao was certified in 2016, it was the only airport in the Americas with CEIV, and recertification recognises that standards have been adopted and maintained.
The programme requires audits and technical training, and must be repeated every three years with teams passing IATA courses covering the latest trends.
Training addresses topics such as risk management, internal audits, nonconformity analysis, change management, operational controls and SLAs.
Patrick Fehring, director of RIOgaleao Cargo says: “The pursuit of excellence must be a permanent endeavour. The achievement of CEIV Pharma Recertification shows that we are keeping our focus on going the extra mile, always providing the best services to our customers, adopting the best practices in moving products in the pharmaceutical sector.”
Carmen Martinez, IATA validator says: “The team is committed to excellence and fully aware of the needs of pharmaceutical products and related services. Top management is also involved with the need for continuous improvement, and this course has demonstrated the interest in expanding and improving knowledge and experience sharing at all staff levels, which is extremely important to consistently meet pharmaceutical requirements.”
