There are a number of detailed WHO Guidelines on Storage and Transportation. A lot of "supplements" have been published in May 2015. These 16 supplements cover a lot of relevant topics from a design of storage facility to transport route profiling qualification etc. However these guidelines and supplements are not easy to find on WHO's websites. The European GDP Association has now put together all these documents to provide a better overview and easier access.
The WHO documents deliver principal requirements and guidance for the safe storage and transportation of time- and temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products. According to WHO, "they are based upon existing regulations and best practice guidance from a wide range of international sources". Most of these international regulations can also be found on our GDP Guidelines site.
