CHENGDU, China, Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tianyin Pharmaceutical Co., Inc. (NYSE MKT: TPI), a pharmaceutical company that specializes in patented biopharmaceutical, modernized traditional Chinese medicine (mTCM), branded generics and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) today announced that the Company has successfully completed Public Notice (Gong Shi) Status for its Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification of TPI's Qionglai Facility (QLF) from the China Food & Drug Administration's (CFDA) with the link at http://www.scfda.gov.cn/directory/web/WS19/CL2076/96334.html. GMP certification processing number: SC20140067. Upon the submission of the final round of documentation, TPI expects to receive GMP certification within five business days. The stringency of the latest GMP certification has improved significantly regarding the level of procedural documentation, standardization, quality control and etc. The receipt of the GMP status at TPI's QLF is regarded as a milestone for the future growth of the Company.
In preparation for the new GMP standards stipulated by the government of China in early 2011, TPI initiated the process of optimizing the manufacturing facilities in compliance with the new GMP standards. Due to the redesigning of the industrial parks in the suburbs of Chengdu, TPI's manufacturing facility at the Longquan district, east of Chengdu, is scheduled to be relocated to Qionglai city, south of Chengdu, which is designated for pharmaceutical industry. The QLF is approximately 18 miles from the Company's recently completed Jiangchuan macrolide (JCM) facility. The QLF is estimated to be 80 mu or 53,000 square meters. The designed production capacity of QLF is 30% higher than the TPI's currently operating Longquan plant. The QLF is a combination of both pre-extraction plant and formulation plant. The pre-extraction facility is designated for processing and purifying raw materials for TCMs using ethanol or distilled water precipitation, filtration, centrifugation, concentration and purification. The TCM extracts will then be processed for the production of mTCM products at the formulation facility where the final biopharmaceutical, TCM and generic products in the forms of oral liquid, granules, tablets, and capsules are produced. In September 2014, the Company has successfully completed the site visit for GMP certification, during which a team of GMP experts and specialists along with CFDA officials conduct a thorough examination of production facility in terms of pre-extraction process, formulation process and various aspects of the pharmaceutical manufacturing procedure.
Headquartered at Chengdu, China, TPI is a pharmaceutical company that specializes in the development, manufacturing, marketing and sales of patented biopharmaceutical, mTCM, branded generics and API. TPI currently manufactures a comprehensive portfolio of 58 products, 24 of which are listed in the highly selective national medicine reimbursement list, 10 are included in the essential drug list of China.
