Responsible Person forum

90.00 Minutes

CPD Hours: 1


Our Responsible Person Forum, provides an opportunity for networking, sharing best practice and discussing current issues with practicing RPs and colleagues working in the GDP field.

The world of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) has developed significantly over the past few years. There has been an increase in focus from many regulatory agencies including the MHRA. With Brexit still highly on the agenda, the result of the Brexit deal will undoubtedly have an impact on supply chains for pharmaceutical products sourced from the European Union and European Economic Area. The MHRA published guidance last year to clarify and support the pharmaceutical industry and importers in the UK. RSSL recognises that there is a need to do more to assist industry in creating an environment that supports the role and responsibilities of Responsible Persons for GDP, Logistic Managers and other individuals involved in the pharmaceutical supply chain industry.

Although predominately aimed at Responsible Persons, this webinar will interest those who are working in Good Distribution Practice for medicinal products, employed by a company that has an MHRA/EU Wholesale Distribution Authorisation (WDA) license. If you are looking for an update to your existing knowledge, in particular relating to the latest current regulations in GDP, with the opportunity to ask questions and share best practice ideas whether you are an RP, Deputy RP, Quality Manager, in a QA Regulatory/Compliance or Logistics role, we would welcome your participation in this forum.
The session topics are driven by changes in regulations and subjects proposed by attendees of previous RP Forums.

    The webinars provide the opportunity to:

    • Network with industry colleagues
    • Share best practice
    • Discuss current issues with RSSL experts and other industry RPs and colleagues working in GDP
    • Gain greater knowledge of the changes in the world of RPs and Supply Chain
    • Share knowledge and experience and discuss hot topics, such as the Role of the Responsible Person Import RP(i)
