Dr Afshin Hosseiny, Chair of the European GDP Association
Pharmaceutical manufacturers and wholesalers outsource many of their GDP related activities, these may include transportation and distribution, cleaning of facilities, pest control, IT systems, etc. Choosing the right partners to provide you with the right level of quality ensuring product integrity in the supply chain is very important and requires a structured approach to the development of requirements, selection process and finally management post selection. An accurate Technical/Quality Agreement reflecting your requirements enables both parties develop a common understanding of quality. An agreed Technical/Quality agreement will ensure a successful partnership is developed, allowing both parties to collaborate, ensuring quality, safety, and efficacy of the medicines involved are maintained throughout the supply chain.
The webinar is aimed at coworkers and high-level personnel from the following industries:
- Pharmaceutical manufacturers (e.g. logistics and QA),
