The application of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) for the Responsible Person handling Pharmaceuticals


Course description

In-depth look at the EU GDP Guidelines and their application in the role of a Responsible Person (RP).

The training is delivered by ex-MHRA GDP inspectors who have extensive experience with the practical application of GDP and challenges faced by Wholesale Distribution Authorisation (WDA(H)) holders. The course focuses on the challenges and opportunities offered to RPs with exercises, workshops and case studies, using real-world examples.

Based on our popular three day course, “Gold Standard” for the role of Responsible Person (RP), this course covers both the Rules and Regulations relating to Good Distribution Practice Guidelines of 5 November 2013 (GDP) and the practical application of GDP in the workplace for colleagues who want to learn more about the requirements, role and responsibilities of the RP.
