Excerpt from the GMP Compliance Adviser

Did a truck driver just ruin a drug shipment?
Not only do you need to protect your drugs from tampering... you must shield your drugs from the extremes of heat and cold during transit... and store and dispense your products so they're as safe and effective as they were when they left the plant.

That means companies like yours need to begin NOW to create a master plan that establishes how your distribution chain will protect the integrity of your products, from the very beginning of your supply chain all the way to the customer’s doorstep.

This e-book is the ultimate guide to preparing your company for compliance with Good Distribution Practice (GDP).

Step by step, it walks you through the planning and implementation process, including the six key requirements included in the EU GDP Guidelines:
  • Procurement, storage, delivery and export of medicinal products in conformity with GDP
  • Definition of managerial competence and responsibility
  • Shipment of medicinal products
  • Prompt provision of documentation
  • Documentation and follow-up on deviations
  • Initiation of CAPA actions
With the EU rules already in place, enforcement will not be far behind. Now is the time to make sure your distribution master plan is in place and fully up to date. Order your copy of Creating a Master Plan for Drug Warehousing, Transportation and Distribution today.
