Good Distribution Practices (GDP) is a set of standards that ensures that the quality of medicine is maintained, without any alteration to its properties, throughout the entire distribution network, including transportation. Implemented by manufacturers, distributors or wholesalers of medicinal products, GDP ensures that adequate storage conditions are observed at all times.
Regardless of how medicines are transported, GDP requires demonstrating that they are not exposed to conditions that may compromise quality and integrity. This means maintaining temperatures within the limits defined by the manufacturer. Shipping companies must implement adequate risk assessments of delivery and drop routes to determine the temperature controls required. Moreover, temperature monitoring equipment should be maintained and calibrated at all times.
