Objectives

Broaden and intensify your knowledge of the Qualified Person’s duties and responsibilities. Experts from the QP Association Advisory Board, pharmaceutical industry and regulatory authority will share their experience on important issues of the QP’s daily business and will give first-hand information on current and future expectations.

Background

Over the last years the role and responsibilities of the Qualified Persons have been increasing considerably. As a key person in the company, the QP has to consider many issues and has to take up the challenges within its areas of responsibilities. Additionally, as laid out in Article 49 of the European Parliament Directive 2001/83/EC, the QP needs to be highly qualified and experienced. This education course is one important part to help the QP be on top of current developments in GMP and regulatory requirements.
