Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Symposium


MHRA have released a summary of the recent Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Symposium. The focus of the 2018 GDP symposium was maintaining compliance in a changing world.

One of the interesting things to note is with the top five deficiencies were reported as follows:


  • Chapter 1 Quality Management – 38% of inspections
  • Chapter 9 Transport – 25% of inspections
  • Chapter 5 Qualification of Customers – 20% of inspections
  • Chapter 6 Returned Medicinal Products – 18% of inspections
  • Chapter 2 Responsible Person – 15% of inspections

From this, organizations should be putting together personal learning action plans, namely:


  • identification of role improvement opportunities
  • evaluation of learning needs
  • increasing knowledge of licence activities
  • undertaking new learning opportunities
  • maintaining learning records
