Pharmaceuticals

The pharmaceutical industry is marked by rapid product introductions and the drive to optimize secure storage footprints while managing compliance. CustomVault’s Pharmaceutical Practice Group is focused on the unique requirements of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) validated high-security storage for pharmaceutical manufacturing, warehousing and laboratory applications.

What You Need

Per the Code of Federal Regulations 21CFR 1301.72, the governing specification for pharmaceutical applications, controlled substance security dictates the following:

Schedule I and II

  • Modular vault systems complemented by GSA Approved Class 5 and AR5 vault doors and day gates (note that these parameters also apply to mobile vaults)
  • TL 30 safes
  • Electronic Security

Schedule III, IV and V

  • Wire-woven cage systems
  • Electronic security

Proper execution of the details is critical for compliance and the viability of your pharmaceutical business. Those in the know seek partners with expertise and experience specific to pharmaceutical solutions because there is no room for error.
