COLPEX has independent quality assurance and control departments and in-house laboratories for each of its facilities. Both are managed by specialized personnel, guaranteeing the reliability of all testing results and the validation of quality control steps performed at each stage of production.
At COLPEX , we control every step of our supply chain. The crude fish oil is sourced from local fisheries and transported to our sites in our own (fish oil-exclusive) tank trucks. Each batch of incoming material is tested and approved prior to reception. In compliance with European and United Stated Pharmacopeia limits, all raw material is tested to rule out the presence of possible environmental contaminants. Specialized laboratories accredited in the US and Canada conduct these analyses.
The refining and concentration processes are performed under strict HACCP and Good Manufacturing Practices standards, in compliance with strict quality controls and procedures and in line with the guidelines and requirements of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act.
COLPEX performs a strict control of the entire supply and production chain, which spans from the origin of the raw material, transport, testing and storage through the different production steps, packaging and testing up to the delivery of the finished product.
