The Roles of the RP and GDP for medicinal products

Our Introduction to GDP Training provides an overview into the Good Distribution Practice Guidelines, the roles and Responsibilities of the Responsible Person (RP) and the competent authorities that enforce the rules and regulations to ensure compliance when handling and distributing medicinal products.

The pharmaceutical industry is a highly regulated sector where the paramount focus on minimising the risk to patient safety has led to significant changes in recent years.

The course would be beneficial for any personnel involved in pharmaceutical distribution looking to obtain a general understanding of GDP and the regulations a Wholesale Distributor of medicinal products must adhere to and for anyone who requires their annual update training following on from their Cogent Gold Standard course. The course will also provide an insight into the competent authority and their role in ensuring patient safety.


We firmly believe that the success of your business and compliance with GDP is in the hands of your RP. Why Consider Us for this course?

I found the course on Training to be a responsible person to be a very well thought and structured course which gave me the roles and resources to come away understanding the training given. It was very informative, topical and saved me time and money trying to wade through a minefield of work to become a responsible person – Jackie is highly qualified and delivers an excellent course, would highly recommend to anyone looking at wholesaling.
