Distribution of Medicines – Quality Management Systems

The current guidelines: Guidelines of 5 November 2013 on Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use (2013/C 343/01) requires a Quality Management System that describes your processes for the distribution of medicinal products.

A main requirement of gaining a WDA (H) is to have a documented Quality Management System, incorporating the company’s Quality Policy, Management Commitment, Standard Operating Procedures, Risk Assessments, GAP Analysis, and Training Records.

We can carry out an assessment of your business, advising and assisting with the production of a Quality System that will describe your procedures, meeting the requirements of the Guidance, and satisfies the requirements of the MHRA Inspectorate.

We can also help you to maintain your quality documents to ensure that they remain current and compliant.
