Good Distribution Practice (GDP)
For companies that import and/or wholesale Chinese propriety medicines, a GDP certification will be required to do business in Singapore.
Good Distribution Practice (GDP) is the implemented standard for ensuring that the quality of medical devices is maintained throughout its distribution journey, enhancing customer satisfaction in supplier-customer relationships. A well-implemented GDP will guarantee that products are consistently stored, transported and handled under suitable conditions, in accordance to the marketing authorization and product specifications. GDP is more than a set of quality manuals. It involves practical procedures, qualified personnel, well-maintained facilities/equipment and consistent maintenance of records and documentation.
We provide full support in developing and implementing an effective quality management system for the distribution of medical devices bringing your company in line with the Good Distribution Practice (GDP).
We assist companies in having standard operating procedures that bring your company’s operations in line with the GDP standards. Through internal audits and management reviews that we conduct, lapses in the processes will be rectified. Our unique templates enable easy recording of necessary data, helping your company address any findings or non-conformities upon a post audit, if any.
We work hand in hand with your company from the beginning till a successful certification is attained, including training your staff in the various aspects of GDP to ensure smooth implementation of standards.
