Demonstrate your compliance with EU guidelines on Good Distribution Practice (GDP) for medicinal products (2013/C 343/01) with management system certification from SGS.
EU GDP describes the minimum standards that wholesale distributors of items, such as medicines, must meet to ensure that product quality and integrity are maintained throughout the supply chain.
This code of standards aims to ensure that products are distributed to retailers and others without any alteration of their properties. The distributor should also implement a tracing system to enable the finding of faulty products and effective recalling. Furthermore, GDP applies to sourcing, storing and transporting active pharmaceutical ingredients and other ingredients used in producing medicines.
Our management system certification services confirm that your medicinal products comply with EU GDP requirements.
