Why Consider us for this session?

If you are currently working in a company who imports from any country outside the UK, from 1st January 2021, the company will need to nominate a Responsible Person for Imports (RPi).

The RPi has an important role in ensuring that only bona fide quality medicines are imported into the UK and ensuring appropriate systems are in place to control and evidence the process. To be a RPi  you must  have undergone suitable training and understand the industry in order to qualify for the role. RPi’s will have a legal responsibility to ensure that batches of authorised medicines imported from countries on an approved list, held by the MHRA, have been certified by a Qualified Person prior to being placed on the UK market. If you are a person named on the Qualified Persons register you be eligible to act as a RPi, however  you must still apply to be named on the RPi register

The course is beneficial for personnel involved in the pharmaceutical industry, to help them to obtain a more in-depth understanding of this new RPi role, how to register for to be  and the scope of the role.

The GPD session at PCL enabled me to focus on the really important things when it comes to getting your wholesale licence. Dawn structured the workshop in a very lively and interactive way so it is easy to follow and to use her ideas for your own business. It was very helpful, I decided to book the Audit training too.
