The State Enterprise “Central Laboratory for Quality Control of Medicines and Medical Products” (until November 22, 2008 – the State Enterprise “Central Laboratory for the Quality Control of Medicines”) was created by State Service of Ukraine on Medicines  (Order No. 48 of February 20, 2004) and is the successor to the Central Laboratory for Quality Control of Medicines, which worked in the state quality control of medicines from February 25, 1998.

Our laboratory is the reference laboratory of the State Service of Ukraine on Medicines and Drug Control (SMDC).

We perform expert examination of documents and testing of medicines and medical products in accordance with the requirements of Ukrainian legislation and have more than 20 years of experience.

We also test medicines and medical products at the request of other official bodies (law enforcement agencies), in particular, when the facts of falsification of drugs have been detected.


We cooperate with various organizations working in the field of quality of medicines as well.

The Central Laboratory is a competent and accredited provider of high-quality analytical services, as well as expertise in the field of quality  of medicines and active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Our specialists are involved by the SMDC to:

  • inspections of pharmaceutical companies (compliance with GMP requirements, licensing conditions)
  • trainings (various aspects of the control laboratory’s activities in accordance with ISO 17025 and leading pharmacopoeia).

Our work is directed to improving the safety of medicines in Ukraine and abroad. We are active members of the General European Network (GEON) of the Official Laboratories for Drug Control (OMCL).

Our attention is given to the best satisfaction of customer requests. We perform our work in accordance with our quality system, always strictly taking care of the objectivity of our findings. Every year, we are confronted with new, challenging tasks to improve and extend the quality of our services.
