· Information about the production facility in which APIs are manufactured for medicinal products (Requirement ID 11370, spearhead level).
Pharmaceutical formulation can take place at more than one geographical location. The supplier may therefore need to provide information about several countries in which pharmaceutical formulation takes place.
The contracting authority may check the provided details regarding the offered medicinal products during the evaluation of tenders. For more information, see the implementation manual.
