This course will explain the basic principles of Good Distribution Practice (GDP). GDP is important because it regulates the movement of products from the manufacturer, or another location of a storage facility, to the end user or to an intermediate point by means of various transport methods and through various storage facilities.
NPCB, Malaysia and most of National Drug Regulatory Agency (NDRA) set rules and regulations on GDP. Those guidelines include requirements for receiving, storage and transport of medicinal products.
Generally, product lifecycle starts with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) where products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use, which is that part of quality assurance.
The objective of GDP is to ensure that the level of quality determined by GMP is maintained throughout the supply chain, without any changes of their properties. The training course on GDP is an awareness training course to build the understanding of the importance of GDP and its key principles.
