GDP - Good Distribution Practice (English)
In the training 'GDP - Good Distribution Practice' we provide the trainees with the knowledge required for employees involved in the distribution process of medicines. To ensure the quality of medicines in the distribution chain from manufacturer to patient, manufacturers, importers and wholesalers must comply with the Good Distribution Practice Guideline (2013/C 343/01) since 2013. Employees involved in the distribution process must have the right experience and knowledge in GDP for this purpose.
