About the event

The good manufacturing and good distribution practice (GMDP) events are ideal for professionals working in quality control and quality assurance, regulatory affairs and compliance, within the manufacture and distribution of medicines. The GDP event is also suitable for small, medium or large wholesalers and would benefit managers and key staff involved in procuring, supplying, exporting and storing medicines, including responsible persons.

See the Inspectorate blog for more information on GMDP as well as details of previous symposiums.

At the events you can:

  • gain greater knowledge of the quality issues affecting your organisation
  • learn more about the quality person and responsible person roles to make your role easier and save your company money and resources
  • recognise commonly seen GMP/GDP deficiencies and learn how to improve compliance in your organisation
  • receive guidance on changing legislation and increasing complexity in the manufacturing and distribution chain
  • use it as an opportunity to share concerns and learn directly from MHRA
  • discover what your peers are doing through managed workshops
  • network with like-minded professionals
  • meet the experts while participating break-out sessions with key speakers


All MHRA events are CPD accredited.
