QuickSTAT eBook: How Good Distribution Practices (GDP) Protect your Medicinal Products

With the ongoing expansion and complexity of the global supply chain, strict compliance with GDP guidelines will continue to be the focus of global regulators.

QuickSTAT has just released a new eBook, Good Distribution Practices (GDP) which includes advice from a widely-known industry professional on best practices for distributing drugs from drug discovery through to manufacturing of the finished product.

Written by GDP Specialist Robert Tungatt, with over 30 years experience developing Quality Systems for the Life Science Industry, the eBook includes an easy to understand explanation of GDP, regulations, and step-by-step guidelines on how to comply with the regulations for the distribution of healthcare products during all aspects of the distribution process—from storage, transportation and handling throughout the supply chain.

Global cold chain logistics spending is expected to grow to $13 billion by 2019, up from $9 billion in 2013. This includes transportation, packaging and temperature control and monitoring devices. These industry developments make it more important than ever for pharmaceutical companies to be more knowledgeable about the current regulatory environment, and have proven Quality Management Systems and processes in place to ensure end-to-end product safety.

“With the ongoing expansion and complexity of the global supply chain and the increase in demand for safe and secure medicinal products, strict compliance with GDP guidelines will continue to be the focus of global regulators,” says Robert Tungatt, Global Director of Regulatory Compliance and Cold Chain Excellence, QuickSTAT.
