Good Distribution Practice Training
NPRA regards pharmaceutical distribution as an important activity in the integrated supply-chain management of pharmaceutical industry. With the globalisation of the pharmaceutical industry, there are multiple parties/individuals involved in handling, storage and distribution of pharmaceutical products. Which warranted NPRA to release an updated guideline focusing only on Good Distribution Practice (GDP). The guideline released lays down principles and practices required by NPRA for pharmaceutical distribution activity in Malaysia. Currently, NPRA is actively conducting audits for GDP requirements concurrently with other license requirements. This is more important for cold chain products such as vaccines and blood plasma products. Companies should not neglect or take such GDP audit lightly. NVS’s consultant are trained to provide GPD training to local companies, be it from a manufacturer or a distributor.
