A very informative overview of GDP and the role of the RP. Great to be able to discuss GDP issues with Brian and with others on the course.
Since 2012 we have been using PCL for regulatory support, staff resourcing, training and general advice.

I would have no hesitation in recommending their services in any of these areas.
