This Live Online Training provides practical guidance to bring and keep your organisation in compliance with the GDP regulations.


The globalisation of the pharmaceutical supply chain has created new challenges for the manufacture and supply of medicinal products in various markets, resulting in reduced control and increased security risk to the products.   

The EU-GDP Guidelines have been extensively revised to take into account the changing nature of the globalised supply chain.  The new requirements have been effective since 2013. These requirements highlight the need for an effective quality management system supported by risk assessment and appropriate controls.
This two-day Live Online Training has been designed to bring you up-to-date with the current regulatory expectations and standards for Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and to provide you with tools and guidance to help you with identifying the gaps in your quality systems and planning and implementing the actions required.

Target Group

GDP Compliance Managers and Responsible Persons from companies involved in the distribution and supply of medicinal products.
