Introduction to Good Distribution Practice (GDP)

Our Introduction to GDP Training provides an overview into the Good Distribution Practice Guidelines, the roles and Responsibilities of the Responsible Person (RP) and the competent authorities that enforce the rules and regulations to ensure compliance when handling and distributing medicinal products.

The pharmaceutical industry is a highly regulated sector where the paramount focus on minimising the risk to patient safety has led to significant changes in recent years.

The course would be beneficial for any personnel involved in pharmaceutical distribution looking to obtain a general understanding of GDP and the regulations a Wholesale Distributor of medicinal products must adhere to. The course will also provide an insight into the competent authority and their role in ensuring patient safety.
