The wholesale distribution of medicinal products is an important activity in the integrated supply chain management. The quality and the integrity of medicinal products can be affected by a lack of adequate control. To this end, the Commission has published guidelines on Good Distribution Practice of medicinal products for human use. GDP is a quality warranty system, which includes requirements for purchase, receiving, storage and export of drugs intended for human consumption.
GDP regulates the division and movement of pharmaceutical products from the premises of the manufacturer of medicinal products, or another central point, to the end user thereof, or to an intermediate point by means of various transport methods, via various storage and/or health establishments.
Manufacturers of medicinal products have to make sure that the products will be distributed under controlled conditions. Therefore, wholesalers, transport companies, warehouses and other partners in the supply chain will have to be selected carefully. An ongoing supervision of these organisations is necessary. It is the aim of CDG to provide a standardized scheme to audit GDP compliance at all levels of the supply chain.
It is the responsibility of the supplying wholesale distributor to protect medicinal products against breakage, adulteration and theft, and to ensure that temperature conditions are maintained within acceptable limits during transport. Wholesalers, transport companies, and warehouses may contact us for a GDP assessment(self assessment) audit. Depending on the size of the organization and their facility we decide audit man-day. CDG is the leading compliance audit company of India providing GDP Compliance assessment services.
