First, the storage conditions ensure that there is no product deterioration. In fact, most drugs are stored for longer periods in other parts of the supply chain. Secondly, packing and repacking systems have built-in check routines to prevent contamination by extraneous materials.
In addition, product recall systems, should they be necessary, are in place and approved by the MCA. And no pack goes out with a foreign-language patient instruction leaflet. These are removed and replaced by a leaflet in English, which is approved by the MCA. All parallel imported products have to be licensed before sale.
