GDP Air Freight Operations Training course
International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents more than 260 airlines and 83 percent of total air traffic, established new guidelines to ensure transparency and proper conditions for Pharma air shipments. These protocols, designated as Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Pharma by the IATA, establish specific and clear standards for handling air freight shipments of pharmaceutical goods. CEIV Pharma delivers worldwide consistency and goes well beyond the transportation and storage requirements in Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Guidelines.
Beginning with GDP
All processes need to be documented and controlled. Because once certified we need to make sure we are always in compliance, since GDP authorities can enter our facilities at any time, without any warning. Building the infrastructure and putting these polices into place created a positive impact on our organization.
While GDP addresses many of the initial needs European pharmaceutical manufacturers and wholesalers have regarding the supply chain, it does not go into enough detail on how products need to be treated by the various parties that handle the cargo at each point in the chain, nor does it cover many actions needed to limit risk.
Moving up to CEIV to go beyond the standards Pharma demands
CEIV provides more stringent regulations than GDP regarding both the temporary storage and transport of pharmaceutical goods.
