In June 2020, the "Good Distribution Practice for Active Substances Guidance on interpretation and implementation" has been published as a joint publication of the ECA Foundation's GDP Association and the Pharmaceutical Quality Group of the Chartered Quality Institute. The monograph is based on the text of the European Commission "Guidelines of 19 March 2015 on principles of Good Distribution Practice of active substances for medicinal products for human use (2015/C 95/01)", but is applicable to all sectors of the distribution network worldwide. It will be of benefit to all involved in active substance distribution activities for initial training, continuing professional development and as a reference source or audit tool.
An interactive PDF of the document is now accessible free of charge in the member's area of the European GDP Association website. The PDF contains several internal and external links and a search function, thus enabling quick and easy access to the information.
