Pharmaceutical Vault Requirements

Class I and II drugs require a solid walled vault with limited access. Regulations allow for layered use of vaults and cages to accommodate business flow processes. Often times when it is necessary to store both outgoing product and secure returned/rejected shipments.

In some cases, both finished goods and bulk materials are designated as controlled substances, challenging manufacturers to design and maintain facilities that are both commercially viable and meet strict regulatory requirements.

DEA requirements, for example, specify walls, floors, and ceilings able to withstand all but the most determined break- through attempts. That means 8 inches of steel reinforced concrete, self-closing and self-locking “day gates”, and a vault door able to withstand 20-man hours of lock manipulation attempts.

Where controlled substances are stored, entrances and exits must be locked and monitored continuously. To meet these requirements, you need an experienced vault solutions provider, such as International Vault.
