Quality Management System
We adhere to strict ISO and Food Safety Guidelines. Our dedicated staff members receive rigorous training, and we strive for perfection in our operations.
Quality, integrity, safety and good service forms the basis of Sastel Pharmaceuticals & Packing’s business.
Sastel Pharmaceuticals & Packing is affiliated with Professional Beauty & CECOSA and a Member of HPA (Health Products Association - http://www.hpasa.co.za) to keep track of latest regulations and client requirements.
In the beginning of 2010, a Quality Management System was implemented. In October 2010 Sastel achieved certification in QMS (ISO 9001) and expanded it to a certification in an Environmental Managed System (ISO 14001) as well as an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHASA 18001) to form an Integrated Management System (IMS). Our Quality Assurance Manager is responsible to maintain, review and upgrade this IMS.
Three Quality Control Inspectors execute the standards and requirements of the IMS on the production floor. Sastel also employs other professionals, i.e. engineer, pharmacists, microbiologist and cosmetic scientists, who assist in the running of the production facility and contribute to the expertise offered for the manufacturing and production of a wide range of products.
We have a passion for further developing South African medicinal herbs and that department is of special interest to Dr. Denise Olivier, head of QA. She has a Ph.D. in Ethnobotany and Phytochemistry.
In Feb 2022 Sastel applied for registration with SAHPRA. Sastel is also registered with SAPC.
Sastel will always take care to protect the intellectual property of each client, and also expect others to respect our intellectual property.
We strive to treat all our customers, suppliers, consultants, service providers, authorities, management and staff with dignity, respect, fairness and integrity.
We sign NDA’s and technical agreements with all our clients. We respect the privacy of our contacts, and will not provide privileged information to third parties, unless required by law to do so.
We are committed to the employment and upliftment of our community and all our staff members receives regular training.
