About

Due to the significant demand for our London GDP Symposium, we are pleased to announce that we will be running an additional event on 23rd November 2016 in Glasgow.

If you have booked a place at the December GDP Symposium in London, please do not take up a space on this event as the presented content will be identical.

The event will be held at The Hilton Glasgow.

This event is ideal for pharmaceutical industry professionals working in quality control and quality assurance, regulatory and compliance within the manufacturing and distribution of medicines.

The 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.

The event 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.

Delegates attending the MHRA GDP symposium will be eligible to claim 5.5 CPD points.

We still however have Standard Tickets available for the GDP in Glasgow, so please click here to register.
