About us

Pia Pharma mission statement

Enhancing the quality and integrity of chemical products through provision of a robust, science-based development and regulatory service for clients in the pharmaceutical, animal health and agrochemical sector.

Pia Pharma is a leading supplier of analytical and regulatory services to the pharmaceutical, animal health and agrochemical industries.

Our service can bring clarity and structure to your organisation’s product development pipeline. We’ll work with you, listen to you, and challenge you to ensure the product meets your expectations…more importantly, your customer’s needs for safe, effective and affordable medicines and agrochemical products.

Pia Pharma’s experienced personnel can manage your development project from concept to commercialisation or tailor a service to complement your existing development resources. We have the flexibility to assist your organisation with any or all of the following development components.


Pia Pharma is a one-stop shop for your product development requirements. As the focus shifts from concept to commercialisation, we can guide you through the requirements for data to address any statutory criteria for toxicology, safety, efficacy, trade, occupational health & safety, environmental safety and project manage each to completion. Through strategic partnerships we have with service providers within these fields we can budget, plan, coordinate and execute an array of ‘in-life’ and field studies to produce the required data packages. Our interaction with regulators ensures that we are planning and designing appropriate studies while obtaining the maximum value from your development dollar.

From concept to commercialization, Pia Pharma works alongside your business, compiling data, reports and coordinating submissions to regulators. Each submission is built on good science, something that is recognised and valued by all regulators. Submissions are closely monitored to minimise delays during the evaluation process. Our clients rely on our continual, effective communication with the regulator. We are passionate advocates for your product, arguing good science as needed to tip the scales in your favour. We pride ourselves on minimal delays and a positive outcome for clients from the regulatory evaluation process.

Our clients can take advantage of our seamless transition for post-authorisation compliance testing services. Our laboratories offer an economical option with good turn-around times.


We are experts in our field and we enjoy using good science to achieve commercial success for our clients.
