Integrating ethics and business in a fast-paced world

We believe that the appropriate way to fulfill our promises of quality is to keep our 130 staff members in a healthy work environment. This consistent quest for an optimum atmosphere in the workplace has been established around clear ethical rules.

A continuous training program in cGMP and GCP guidelines is the cornerstone of our ethical guidance. As our clients and suppliers work under cGMP guidelines, normalization of ethical rules are verified by regular internal and external audits. All our employees have entered strict confidentiality agreements with KABS, preventing the escape of confidential information from our premises.

Over the years, we have kept our operational philosophy based on rewarded teamwork. This philosophy encourages all KABS staff members to offer technical and regulatory quality within the deadline requirements requested by our clients. We enjoy close and lasting relationships with our clients. As the future is determined by our past actions, we will keep listening to the market and adapt.


Quality and regulatory compliance

Our commitment: Quality and compliance

An operational philosophy based on rewarded teamwork allows KABS to offer a high level of technical and regulatory quality while respecting deadlines. All analytical testing activities performed at KABS are executed under the cGMP guidelines of Health Canada, the USFDA and the ICH, in secure laboratory facilities. Health Canada, USFDA, CFIA (Veterinary Biologics), and all our local and international clients audit us for regulatory compliance on a regular basis. KABS is an audited pre-qualified testing facility for the WHO. KABS facilities were audited by the USFDA in 2002, 2005, 2008 and 2010.

Quality systems of the laboratories and pilot plants are maintained and improved by separate teams. Our four pilot plants are also operated according to cGMP guidelines. Successful product development requires reliable stability indicating analytical data. Our senior formulators are working in close collaboration with senior analysts of analytical R&D department. Even at early stages of development, our formulations and processes are developed to be scaled-up for mass production.

At your convenience, we welcome in-depth audits of our facilities, quality systems and operating procedures.
