GMP & GDP Forum 2023

Agenda Day 3: GDP Forum | 22 June 2023


Alfred Hunt

It is of key importance that medicinal products are not only made to a high quality in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), but that the quality and integrity of these products are maintained through the entire supply chain to the patient. This is where Good Distribution Practice (GDP) comes into play.
On day 3, challenges and possible solutions will be discussed and examples will demonstrate how the requirements can be put into practice.
