The implementation of GDP rules ensures that consistent quality management systems are in place throughout the supply chain: from the delivery of raw materials to manufacturing plants to the shipment of finished products to final users. It is based on the approaches and principles of Good Distribution Practice adopted in the EU and recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Maintaining product safety and quality during storage and handling is critical in the pharmaceutical industry.
