EDMONTON, Canada: June 11, 2018. Edmonton International Airport is aiming to be the first CEIV certified pharma hub in Canada. The gateway will pursue the International Air Transport Association (IATA) certification because pharmaceutical products require a consistent and stable temperature in the supply chain, from the shipper to the end user.

Edmonton International AirportIATA’s s Center of Excellence of Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) provides a globally consistent, recognized and standardized certification for pharma shipments in air freight.

Achieving this certification will ensure the airport community meets the highest global standard for transporting pharmaceutical products by air and is a vital step in building the cargo connectivity of the Edmonton Metro Region to the rest of the world, according to a statement.

“Edmonton International Airport is excited to begin the CEIV Pharma Certification with IATA and our partners in air and ground freight,” said Tom Ruth, president and CEO of EIA. “With the emerging pharma and bio-pharma development and clustering we continue to see in our region, EIA and our key air cargo stakeholders are looking to continuously improve the quality of how pharma cargo is handled, while connecting our airport to the global pharmaceutical network," he added.

“IATA congratulates Edmonton International Airport on its important decision to pursue CEIV Pharma certification, and to be the first airport community in Canada to do so!” said Nick Careen, IATA’s Senior Vice President, Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security. “Pharmaceutical products not only enhance lives but can actually save them, so it is critical that all participants in the cold chain adhere to these global industry standards to ensure recognized pharma handling at every step of the process.”
