Samsung BioLogics said Thursday it has become the first CMO company globally to obtain ISO 27001 certification from the Geneva-based International Organization for Standardization.

ISO 27001 is the most prestigious international standards certification in information security. It acknowledges the local biopharma firm to be the “World’s Best CDMO Company,” and will help boost trust between global partners, the company said.

“Obtaining the ISO 27001 certification will secure the trust of global clients. Further, I believe it will enhance our competitiveness overseas,” said Kim Yong-shin, head of the firm’s global customer support division.
