For nearly 70 years, Alcon has been dedicated to developing only the highest quality products to help preserve, restore and enhance vision worldwide.
Patients are at the center of everything we do and at the heart of our commitment to quality. Because our work touches millions of patients in many different ways, our commitment to quality is critical in order to provide customers and their patients with the products they trust. Each product is tested to ensure compliance with global statutory and regulatory requirements, and is thoroughly tested to ensure safety and efficacy. We have also developed a comprehensive management system to help assure consistent quality at every step of the way. Alcon is also involved with the committees that develop quality standards worldwide.
Setting the Standard, from Start to Finish
In all phases of our business, Alcon demands uncompromising excellence.
Alcon R&D utilizes a Core Team approach to product development and support, bringing together experts in manufacturing, quality and safety, marketing, and clinical and regulatory affairs, to ensure focused collaboration that helps move products through the pipeline.
By evaluating all systems governing the business, Alcon is better able to make adjustments to increase effectiveness and efficiency. We constantly undertake quality and productivity improvement projects in which we review objectives, audit results, analyze data, and take corrective and preventative action to maintain high standards.
We are committed to compliance within REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization of Chemicals), a European Community Regulation that focuses on chemicals and their safe use. View the SVHC's in our products.
