Pharmaceutical Law & Administration
This highly interactive four-and-a-half-day course is designed to provide the aspiring Qualified Person and pharmaceutical quality professional with the knowledge and understanding of international pharmaceutical legislation so that they can carry out their duties with skill and authority. We will describe the laws, regulations and guidance that dictate how we must work on a daily basis, we will explain why these laws exist and how they come into being, we will describe the roles and responsibilities of the major international regulatory agencies and we will emphasise the key role that QP and pharmaceutical professionals must play to ensure compliance with international legislation in the interest of patient safety.
Pharmaceutical law and administration is a key foundation knowledge requirement for all Qualified Persons (QP). This is clearly spelled out in the relevant article of European Directives 2001/82/EC and 2001/83/EC and in the current Qualified Person Study Guide. The QP must ensure that the relevant laws are being complied with. Thus, a thorough understanding of the laws and legal processes, within Europe and beyond, is essential.
This is equally true for other pharmaceutical technical managers.
This course is approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry as suitable for their members’ CPD.
If you choose our virtual learning option, training will be delivered via a combination of an instructor-led virtual classroom and self-paced learning online. Full details will be sent to you following registration.
