Good Distribution Practice - Qualification of suppliers


The U.K. MHRA have produced a useful article about Good Distribution Practice. The article is titled “Good Distribution Practice - Qualification of suppliers, a helpful reminder of the 3 steps needed to assure supply chain integrity.”

The first step is to verify that supplies of medicinal products only come from persons who are themselves in possession of a wholesale distribution authorisation, or who are in possession of a manufacturing authorisation which covers the product in question.

The second step requires that wholesalers verify that any wholesale supplier complies with the principles and guidelines of good distribution practices.

The third step is periodic rechecking of the information obtained and due diligence.
