Good Distribution Practice
- A Practical Approach

This course is designed specifically for staff working in wholesale and distribution of medicines. It will assist them in understanding and applying Good Distribution Practice principles to practical workplace situations.

Course description:

The development of the rules and guidelines of GDP will be discussed with the delegates, who will then go on to investigate the implications, potential risks to product safety and the control systems in place within their organization. By relating these findings back to the organization’s quality system, the delegates discover how quality is an integral part of their business.

The course includes a significant number of practical exercises, case-studies and workshops to allow delegates to investigate real situations and develop practical solutions.

Delegates will be encouraged to share personal experiences and solutions to the various challenges faced in everyday work.

The course is aimed at anyone who has responsibility for finished pharmaceutical products, intermediates or raw materials during storage and distribution – including transportation.  This will include staff working in Quality, Operations, Transportation etc.
