Face-to-face training

Two hour training to give drivers a better understanding of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and how pharmaceutical and medicinal products, active pharmaceutical ingredients, raw materials and medical devices should be correctly collected and delivered to ensure full compliance and quality is maintained along the supply chain.

The training also provides drivers with the opportunity to discuss their requirements and concerns and will assist them in learning more about their crucial role in the supply chain.

“Consideration should also be given to inclusion within the training programme of staff engaged through third party contract service providers, such as delivery drivers and others, as may be relevant.”
