Biocon announced that its subsidiary Biocon Biologics India has received the Certificate of GMP compliance from EMA for multiple Biologics Drug Substance (DS) and Drug Product (DP) manufacturing facilities at Biocon Park, Bengaluru.

These facilities are used for the manufacture of DS and DP for Biosimilars: Bevacizumab, Trastuzumab, Pegfilgrastim and secondary packaging of Insulin Glargine for EU markets, and were inspected in March 2020.

This approval expands Biocon Biologics' capacities multi-fold to address the growing needs of patients in the EU markets for Trastuzumab commercialized in March 2019 and for Pegfilgrastim expected to be commercialized soon.

This certification would further enable the approval process of our biosimilar Bevacizumab, the Marketing Authorization Application for which is currently under review by the European authorities.
