Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Continuing Professional Development is
the responsibility of individuals for the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills to ensure continuing competence as a professional throughout their career.
As a QP, recording your CPD will identify your commitment to maintaining your professional competence, as required by Annex 16 to the EU Guide to Good Manufacturing Practice:
8.3 A QP should maintain his knowledge and experience up to date in the light of technical and scientific process and changes in quality management relevant to the products which he is required to certify.
Using our CPD framework is voluntary, but if you send an appropriate return, the date will be noted in the QP Register.
Use our online CPD tool to record your CPD. If you use the online tool, please inform the Qualified Persons Registration Officer to have your date of submission noted in the Register. As an alternative, you can use the CPD for QPs form, and return it by email or post.
