First CEIV Pharma Certification in Singapore

March 9th, 2017

Bolloré Logistics Singapore was successfully awarded by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as CEIV Pharma-compliant at its platform located in the Airport Logistics Park, and is one of the first transport and logistics companies in Singapore to receive this certification.

The aim of Bolloré Logistics is to deploy this action throughout its global network with on-going certifications on other sites in Asia-Pacific, including in Australia, Hong Kong and Japan.

This is a new success for the Bolloré Group, which shows its commitment to achieve the highest international quality standard in the global pharmaceutical supply chain for its customers, by continually improving its processes and infrastructures in compliance with the CEIV Pharma standards.

With its modern and innovative facilities, the excellence of its quality management system, the expertise of its teams and its multiple certifications, Bolloré Logistics is a major global player in the supply chain of pharmaceutical products.

Being certified by IATA CEIV Pharma, Bolloré Logistics Singapore fully conforms to all applicable pharmaceutical standards expected from pharmaceutical manufacturers in terms of facilities, equipment, operations and staff and being capable to provide seamless cool chain transportation.

This global initiative, already in place on European sites in Paris Roissy CDG (France), Brussels (Belgium), Frankfurt (Germany) and Lisbon (Portugal) is also currently in progress on other sites such as Johannesburg in South Africa or Chicago in the USA.


IATA created the Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) in 2015. It aims at setting the industrial standard for air cargo supply chain in pharmaceutical handling excellence. It addresses the industry’s need for more safety, security, compliance and efficiency, by creating a globally consistent and recognized pharmaceutical product handling certification. CEIV Pharma encompasses – even supersedes – many of the existing pharmaceutical standards and guidelines, such as IATA Temperature Control Regulations (TCR), European Union Good Distribution Practices (EU GDP), World Health Organization Annex 5, and United States Pharmacopeia Standards.
