EMA Good Distribution Practices Certificates

$79 / year

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) Good Distribution Practices Certificates (GDP) dataset lists GDP Certificates delivered by EMA or national competent authorities to European Economic Area countries Wholesale distributors of pharmaceutical products.


Active substances and medicinal products shall be distributed in accordance with good distribution practices. Member States shall enter the certificates of good distribution practices which they issue in the Union database (EudraGMDP) in accordance with Art. 111(6) of the Directive 2001/83/EC as amended.

Member States should appoint inspectors to inspect wholesale distributor sites concerned by Directive 2001/83/EC and 2001/82/EC. There should be sufficient resources at all levels to meet, effectively and efficiently, the EU requirements of verifying compliance with the legal requirements relating to the wholesale distribution of medicinal products.
The inspectors shall be officials of or appointed by the competent authorities of the Member States in accordance with national regulations and follow the provisions for the national competent authority.
GDP inspections may be performed before granting or modifying a wholesale distribution authorization. Routine GDP inspections cover the assessment of GDP compliance of a site.
Nonroutine inspection may be conducted to check specific aspects of GDP compliance, for example investigation of complaints, recalls, quality defects, previous non-compliance or suspected falsified products.
The wide diversity of facilities together with the variety of products supplied and handled by a site means that assessment by inspectors on site of the degree of compliance with GDP is essential. A consistent approach to the evaluation of the GDP standard is required.
