Integrating Good Distribution Practice Into The QMS

Good Distribution Practice (GDP) concerns the distribution processes for pharmaceutical products that results in medics and patients obtaining access to the medications required. For the pharmaceutical organization, the distribution process occurs both upstream and downstream. Upstream are the suppliers who create goods and services used in a manufacturer’s own operations, such as raw components or materials.

The downstream supply chain efficiently distributes a company’s products or services to its customers. Each stage, both upstream and downstream, needs to be proactively risk assessed. With these endeavours, the use of digital technology can be of great benefit.

Tim Sandle has written a new article on the complexities of modern GDP systems and challenges.
