Pharmaceutical intermediates industry: the cross industry between chemical industry and pharmaceutical industry
Pharmaceutical intermediates are intermediate substances in the synthesis process of API, which are fine pharmaceutical chemicals. Production does not require a drug production license. According to the degree of impact on the quality of the final API, they can be divided into non-gmp intermediates and GMP intermediates (ICHQ7 defines pharmaceutical intermediates produced under the requirements of GMP).
Pharmaceutical intermediates industry refers to those chemical enterprises that produce and process organic/inorganic intermediates or bulk drugs for pharmaceutical enterprises in accordance with strict quality standards by chemical synthesis or biosynthesis methods for manufacturing finished drugs.
