Nippon Express (Taiwan) Co., Ltd. (Masaru Kawamoto, President; hereinafter, "NE Taiwan"), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Mitsuru Saito, President), has obtained Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification effective Saturday, August 7, for transport services within Taiwan.
Taiwan has been striving to strengthen quality control for pharmaceuticals, and accordingly mandated at the end of 2018 that pharmaceutical manufacturers and sales companies licensed to produce pharmaceuticals acquire GDP certification.
