Who will the course benefit?

This GDP course is aimed principally at personnel new to working with GDP as well as those needing an update on more recent changes in GDP requirements and expectations.  The course is also of great value to anyone who is, or wishes to be, a Responsible Person (RP).  In addition the course will provide those used to working with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) an insight into the principle similarities and differences between GDP and GMP.
