Good Distribution Practice/ Responsible Person Training

It is a requirement that ALL personnel involved with the storage and distribution of medicinal products are suitably trained.

Whether you are applying for a Wholesale Distributor Authorisation or are a Responsible Person requiring a refresher course for your Continuing Professional Development (CPD), our courses are highly interactive and informative and cover all aspects of the requirements of the Guidelines on the Good Distribution Practice of medicinal products for human use.
