About

Who should attend?

The GMP event is ideal for pharmaceutical industry professionals in quality control, quality assurance, supply chain and production management, as well as regulatory and compliance individuals involved in the manufacturing of medicines. The GMP event is complemented by the GDP event which covers distribution aspects.

The GDP event is suitable for small, medium or large wholesalers and would benefit managers and key staff members involved in procuring, supplying, exporting, and storing medicines as well as responsible persons.

These events will provide latest information and guidance on changing legislation and increasing complexity in the manufacturing and distribution chain. The symposium will offer a highly interactive ‘hands on’ learning experience, detailed workshop sessions will review actual sample deficiencies found by regulators and explain how to address and improve compliance in these critical areas.


Why attend?

  • gain greater knowledge of the quality issues affecting your organisation
  • have a clear understanding of your key responsibilities and accountabilities as Qualified Person, Head of Production or Responsible Person with a clear focus on the legal and compliance aspects
  • gain detailed knowledge on the best in class standards of GMP and GDP and why is it so essential for patient safety
