Dr Nicola Spiggelkötter, Knowledge & Support


Since September 2015, the “Guidelines on principles of Good Distribution Practice of active substances for medicinal products for human use” have been obligatory. The driving force behind these Guidelines is the combat against falsified drug substances and drug products. It is intended to control the entire supply chain and thus to mitigate the risk associated with complex distribution pathways. Well trained staff has to ensure that all the requirements of the guidelines are met. In several sections of the Guidelines, it is pointed out that a thorough training of the employees is important.
