Beximco Pharmaceuticals Limited (“BPL” or “the Company”), the fast-growing manufacturer of generic pharmaceutical formulation products, active pharmaceutical ingredients and intravenous fluids, today announces that it has received GMP (“Good Manufacturing Practices”) accreditation from the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) for its oral solid inhaler and sterile eye drop facilities.

Beximco Pharma is the first Bangladeshi company to receive GMP accreditation from the TFDA, which is considered to be one of the world’s most stringent regulatory agencies. This prestigious and notable achievement opens a new marketing opportunity for Beximco Pharma’s products in the ASEAN market, including Taiwan, one of the most advanced pharmaceutical markets in Asia. Like several other developed countries, Taiwan is increasingly promoting access to generic drugs, which offers opportunities for generic drug companies like Beximco Pharma. There are currently only a limited number of generic pharmaceutical companies which have received TFDA approval.

This significant milestone validates Beximco Pharma’s commitment to expand its business around the globe. The Company currently exports to many countries and its world class manufacturing facilities have already received GMP approvals from global regulatory authorities including AGES (EU), TGA (Australia) and ANVISA (Brazil).

Nazmul Hassan, Managing Director of Beximco Pharma, said; “We are very pleased to have reached such an important milestone with the TFDA, which is testament to the high standards of quality and compliance practices put in place by the Company. This approval is an important step towards our aspiration to become a global generic drug player and building a significant presence in the regulated markets.’’
