Guidelines of 5 November 2013 on Good Distribution Practice of medicinal products for human use


CHAPTER 3 GDP Guidelines — PREMISES AND EQUIPMENT (2013/C 343/01)

Wholesale distributors must have suitable and adequate premises, installations and equipment ( 1 ), so as to ensure proper

storage and distribution of medicinal products. In particular, the premises should be clean, dry and maintained within acceptable temperature


CHAPTER 4 GDP Guidelines — DOCUMENTATION (2013/C 343/01)

Good documentation constitutes an essential part of the quality system. Written documentation should prevent errors from

spoken communication and permits the tracking of relevant operations during the distribution of medicinal product

CHAPTER 5 GDP Guidelines — OPERATIONS (2013/C 343/01)

All actions taken by wholesale distributors should ensure that the identity of the medicinal product is not lost and that the

wholesale distribution of medicinal products is performed according to the information on the outer packaging.

CHAPTER 9 GDP Guidelines — TRANSPORTATION (2013/C 343/01)

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.

Regardless of the mode of transport, it should be possible to demonstrate that the medicines have not been exposed to conditions that may compromise

their quality and integrity. A risk-based approach should be utilised when planning transportation.




16.15 - 17.15: Frank Peeters, Managing Director, Tobeas


How can we make temperature mapping easier


• Thermal mapping is a requirement of the GDP’s. This has to be performed prior to commencement of use of a warehouse or transportation

system, and when making modifications to the facility or temperature controlling equipment. Risk assessments can hereby help to handle the

different mapping operations in order to reduce the workload and still assure GDP compliance.

• What are the parameters to take into account when performing a temperature mapping study? Can we assume that a transportation system is a

warehouse on wheels, or do other factors play a role? How to we cope with the multitude of situations and their possible combinations?

• Performing a temperature mapping can therefore become a very tedious operation. We achieve effortless temperature mapping by combining

IoT loggers with a performant processing tool. We’ll give you a glimp of the future.

The challenge of shipping made to order, radioactive, pharmaceuticals


• The challenge of shipping made to order, radioactive, pharmaceuticals

• Radiopharmaceuticals have to follow both the pharmaceutical regulations as well as the dangerous goods regulations

• To be able to ship within 24 hours manufacturing companies also have to be Known Consigner and AEO authorized

• On top of that radiopharmaceuticals have an extreme short shelf-life, from hours to days. Any delay in shipment can have a patient impact.

• The availability of air freight capacity and denial of shipment is becoming an increased problem for these products

• GDP imposes extra challenges with regards to temperature controlled shipping

Risk Management Framework for Outsourcing in Pharmaceutical Supply Chain


This presentation will focus on strategies to enhance internal efficiencies while engaging key such as regulation, risk quality standards, market access among other key challenges. The overall engage is based on better understanding of the outsourcing process of pharma supply chain, its impact costs, quality and to provide engagement for such areas as manufacturing and distribution ways of unlocking hidden risks. Here the argument has been developed based on Quality Management System this includes control efficacy and efficiency for the outsourcing activities. The model suggested will focus on PDCA cycle – plan, do, check and act where the application within the outsourcing process of transport of medicines has proven and interesting results for consideration during practical tasks. The practicalities of the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain are engaged based on a practical case from within the industry where behavioural and cultural factors are engaged as means of high importance to ensure efficiency and success of the both internal oversight and external partner.

Harmonising of GDP across Europe


Good Distribution Practice of Medical Products for Human Use has raised the standards in the medicinal products supply chain. Since their introduction there has been an increased focus by the competent authorities on the evidence medicine wholesalers must justify compliance with GDP and prove the quality and integrity of their product throughout their whole supply chain. Across the EEA there are still some slight variance in standards and implementation of GDP however as time goes on there is greater harmonisation and sharing of best practice across the EEA. The work shop today is titled “Harmonising of GDP across Europe” and is looking at the main chapters of the current GDP Guidelines. While maintaining

product integrity during supply chain is the key, it is also noticeable the current tightening of regulation for import/export where Good Manufacturing Practices are engaged to create a robust framework for both storage and transport of medicine for human consumption. While Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs) are subject heavily to Good Clinical Practice, and GMP, given the recent changes In GDP requirements there is a growing need for follow the GDP when engaging in storage and or transport of such products.
