GDP Responsible Person Cogent “Gold Standard” Training

Formally recognised by the MHRA


Our three day Cogent “Gold standard” Responsible Person (RP) Training, formally recognised by the MHRA, fulfils the training requirements of Chapter 2.2 of the Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guidelines. Our course evaluates the roles and responsibilities of the RP in relation to current legislation for GDP for 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 existing and potential RPs, pharmaceutical managers or personnel involved in pharmaceutical distribution looking to expand their GDP knowledge.

We firmly believe that the success of your business and compliance with GDP is in the hands of your RP.
