Why trust Vicol?

We have a thorough understanding of industry requirements by continuously studying changes in regulatory requirements, which may include revised guidelines and regulations from SANS, SAHPRA (South African Health Products Regulating Authority), WHO (World Health Organisation) and keeping up to date with current Pharmaceutical cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice).

Vicol can guarantee measurable results as our clients have to have their projects approved through third party audits, lab tests or the client’s own in-house acceptance protocol.

All of our solutions are custom designed for the unique requirements of our clients. Our quick adaptability to niche requests allows us to accommodate these with minimal cost impact.

Since we view absolute accountability as non-negotiable aspect of the company, we will only take on projects that we know we can see through to ultimate success.
