QP Module Role & Professional Duties

16 - 17 January 2018, Reading, United Kingdom

Course Overview

A Qualified Person (QP) must certify that each batch of medicinal product (for human or veterinary use) complies with its Marketing Authorisation or Clinical Trial Application, GMP and certain other requirements. Their conduct overall must comply with the Code of Practice for QPs.

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the requirements of the UK Study Guide and, by using interactive questions and scenarios, shows how the Qualified Person can comply with the legal and operational requirements of the role.


The module is essential for all candidates who expect to take the QP Viva. It forms a valuable contribution to Continuing Professional Development for those QPs who qualified some years ago.

Other managers and supervisors from within pharmaceutical manufacturing will benefit from attending this course as they will gain a thorough understanding of the relationship of the QP with their own role.
