During January 2017 Cenova was subjected to an audit by the authorities of Kazakhstan. The reason for the audit was that one of Cenovas customers are planning to enter the market of Kazakhstan with a product range which to date has not been available in the country. Launching a class III product on a new market of course means some extensive work for our customer, and we are therefore more than happy to support the process as much as we can.
The result was that the authorities, consisting of two government officials and a Russian interpreter left Cenova satisfied with no non conformities raised. The result led to a recommendation to the authorities of Kazakhstan to approve a product launch.
