Regulatory compliance

Biocair is a Good Distribution Practice (GDP) compliant logistics specialist, so our experts across the global network ensure that every stage of each shipment is managed with care, knowledge and precision.


GDP compliance

GDP requirements must be met to ensure legal and safe shipping for the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and clinical trial sectors.

As global laws differ, Biocair provides time-saving assistance with customs tariff codes, classification of dangerous goods, labelling and other requirements.

As an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) we work closely with major regulators, including the International Air Transport Association (IATA), Medicines Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to meet all regulatory and compliance requirements.

Classification of materials

Biocair classifies all materials to guarantee safe and compliant transportation:

  • Hazards - for all domestic and international movements
  • Government regulatory requirements
  • Trade compliance – advising on valuation and customs coding to ensure clearances are smooth and auditable

Our priority is to avoid delays, endangerment to the materials in transit and disruption to your schedules. Biocair’s comprehensive classification process means products are always supplied with the correct declarations, licenses, permits, labelling and customs coding.

Tailored documentation

Biocair handles all labelling and paperwork, tailoring documentation to precisely meet the requirements of each shipment. We can complete compliant pro-forma invoices, air waybill/consignment notes and paperwork to accompany dangerous goods.

We also ensure compliance in transit, handling all labelling for your shipment on your behalf.

If we are unable to legally supply documentation, we can advise on proper completion or even supply you with templates, saving your team time and effort.
