Course Description:

In China's latest public health scandal over the alleged illegal distribution of improperly stored vaccines that has reignited drug-safety concerns in China. According to state media, vaccines valued at almost $90 million have been distributed across the country. The health regulator says the vaccines were all produced by licensed manufacturers, but were stored and transported without proper refrigeration.

The importance of GDP, in insuring the safety and quality of pharmaceutical products, is being more recognized by regulatory authorities. The new EU GDP Guideline in 2013, and the subsequent GDP Guideline by PIC/S in 2014, contains major changes and completely new contents.

This course puts these into a logical perspective so that the participant can identify the correct GDP requirements unique to their company's operations, including those for material management, manufacturing control and packaging control. The GDP training provides an introduction to GDP for the pharmaceutical industry. This training course focuses on the differences between GDP and GMP, and their applications. GDP (GWP) regulations in Europe, US and other countries will be compared. This training addresses the rationale of maintaining a high level of GDP throughout the whole process of storage and distribution to protect the medicinal products distributed through the supply chain without any alternation. Some practical aspects of GDP, such as cold chain management, are also covered. This training is suitable for employees and professionals from storage, transportation, distribution, and related fields, who are involved in the various processes of drug logistics.

Note: This course will be taught by a native Chinese instructor in Chinese language.

Local Attractions

Yu Garden the forbidden city or Yuyuan Garden, the Garden of Happiness, is an extensive Chinese garden located beside the City God Temple in the northeast of the Old City of Shanghai. It abuts the Yuyuan Tourist Mart and is accessible from the Shanghai Metro's Line 10 Yuyuan Garden Station. A centerpiece is the Currow ancient stone, a porous 3.3-m, 5-ton boulder. Rumours about its origin include the story that it was meant for the imperial palace in Beijing, but was salvaged after the boat sank off Shanghai. Yu Garden was first built in 1559 during the Ming Dynasty by Pan Yunduan as a comfort for his father, the minister Pan En, in his old age.

Nanjing Road is the main shopping street of Shanghai, and is one of the world's busiest shopping streets. The street is named after the city of Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu province neighbouring Shanghai. Today's Nanjing Road comprises two sections, Nanjing Road East and Nanjing Road West. In some contexts, "Nanjing Road" refers only to what was pre-1945 Nanjing Road, today's Nanjing Road East, which is largely pedestrianised. Before the adoption of the pinyin romanisation in the 1950s, its name was rendered as Nanking Road in English. The history of Nanjing Road can be traced back to the year 1845. At that time it was called “Park Lane”, which stretched from the Bund to He’nan Road.

People's Square is a large public square in the Huangpu District of Shanghai. It is south of Nanjing Road (West) and north of Huaihai Road (East). People's Square is the site of Shanghai's municipal government headquarters building and is used as the standard reference point for measurement of distance in the Shanghai municipality. Prior to 1949 and the establishment of the People's Republic of China, what is now People's Square was a course for horse racing owned by the Shanghai Race Club. After gambling and horse racing were banned by the new Communist government, a part of the race course became People's Square, which included a large avenue and spectator stands for use during parades.

The Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower is a TV tower in Shanghai, China. Its location at the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district by the side of Huangpu River, opposite The Bund, makes it a distinct landmark in the area. Its principal designers were Jiang Huan Chen, Lin Benlin, and Zhang Xiulin. Construction began in 1991, and the tower was completed in 1994. At 468 m (1,535 feet) high, it was the tallest structure in China from 1994–2007, when it was surpassed by the Shanghai World Financial Center. It is classified as a AAAAA scenic area by the China National Tourism Administration. The tower is brightly lit in different LED sequences at night.

The Jade Buddha Temple is a Buddhist temple in Shanghai. As with many modern Chinese Buddhist temples, the current temple draws from both the Pure Land and Chan traditions of Mahayana Buddhism. It was founded in 1882 with two jade Buddha statues imported to Shanghai from Burma by sea. These were a sitting Buddha (1.95 meters tall, 3 tonnes), and a smaller reclining Buddha representing the Buddha's death. The temple now also contains a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, donated from Singapore, and visitors may mistake this larger sculpture for the original, smaller piece.
