What is GDP:

GDP is an IEA solution to the EU regulation to ensure the safe handling, security and quality of medical products is maintained throughout the supply chain.

The Good Distribution Practice Passport plays a key role in assuring quality of the supply chain and distribution of pharmaceutical and medical devices products. The Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Passport by the Irish Exporters Association is the first of its kind and ensures compliance and safety throughout the whole supply chain.

Manufacturers can then ensure that pharmaceutical and medical devices products are transported, stored and handled according the GMP and GDP regulations and guidelines by dealing with GDP Passport holders.

The Code is focused at providing training courses to all levels of personnel involved in the supply chain. The key to success is the full suite of standardised and certified training which is to be undertaken by all those engaged either directly by the manufacturer or indirectly by the Service Provider in distribution activities, as stated in ‘WHO Good Distribution Practices for Pharmaceutical Products’, section 7.1.
