GMP upgrade project

at B. Braun Medical AG, CH Sempach

The headquarters of B. Braun Medical AG Switzerland and the Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Infection Control are located in Sempach. This is where disinfectant and sanitary preparations are developed, produced and marketed for global supply via the B. Braun Group’s sales network.

The goal of the “GMP upgrade” project was the integrated handling of all compliance-related and technical services within the production area of the Centre of Excellence for Infection Control. In addition, all optimisation, qualification and validation activities were coordinated with the customer's existing three-shift operation with the least possible impact on the production plan.
