The new Guidelines of 5 November 2013 on Good Distribution Practice of medicinal products for human use (2013/C 343/1) are based on 10 chapters. They have been implemented to guide wholesale distributors in conducting their activities in a compliant way which prevents falsified medicine and maintains product integrity. Ultimately protecting the patients.

After conducting a GAP analysis, you need to create solid and robust quality system in regards to your activities.

A key part during this process is to write up your Standard Procedure Operations in line with your activities. Sounds easy, think again…
