Read Frequently Asked Questions

Upon completion of this training program, attendees will learn key factors that would affect the shipping and distribution of drug products. One must understand the product stability profile, typical environmental conditions for storage and anticipating environmental extremes for distribution. These data will be necessary to design shipping conditions in order to maintain quality of the drug product through expiry.

Why Should You Attend:

Shipping pharmaceutical products is more complicated than shipping any other items. Current GMP requires organizations maintain good storage and/or distribution practices of drug products throughout the supply chain as part of Quality Management System (QMS). There are specific guidelines and regulations involved in shipping as there are necessary steps to ensure that quality of the drug products are not compromised before they reach the consumer.

Temperature is a primary concern when shipping pharmaceuticals. Products must be shipped in containers that are well insulated. Temperature controlled shipments ensure that drug product are kept in optimal condition. Direct, non-stop routes are used to ensure that delivery is secured as well as other logistic considerations such as cameras in the warehouse, satellite tracking or visibility.

The webinar will discuss the global nature of the pharmaceutical distribution supply chain and how temperature cycling studies can be done to support temperature excursions and shipping of drug products.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Introduce an overview and complexity of the storage and distribution of pharmaceutical products
  • Review observations on shipping practices
  • Goal of stability studies and environmental factors
  • Establish temperature cycling studies
  • Analytical testing for these products

Who Will Benefit:

  • Analytical chemists
  • QC managers
  • QA managers
  • Compliance managers
  • Lab managers
  • Sale managers
  • Distributors and manufacturers of raw materials and ingredients
  • Individuals who are responsible for storage, shipping and distributing products through the supply chain
