Mid of September the transitional period of the new in March 2013 published EU guideline “Good Distribution Practice (GDP)” will end. The new heavily modified guideline will apply for sales and distribution companies, who are trading or transporting pharmaceutical products or transporting. Aim of the guideline is the improvement of quality along the whole supply chain, from the producer to the end consumer. That implies among other things that from now on not only the temperature control from 2 to 8 degree Celsius is mandatory prescribed. According to the GDP every transport temperature indicated by the manufacturer has to be guaranteed by the service provider. The requirements for the areas trading and logistics become far more stringent with the approach of the GDP to the GMP (for development and production).
