Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products 

The wholesale distribution of medicinal products is an important activity in integrated supply chain management. The distribution network for medicinal products is increasingly complex and involves many players. New guidelines assist wholesale distributors in conducting their activities and the same principles apply further along in the supply chain to dispensing pharmacists. Compliance with these guidelines will ensure control of the distribution chain and as such help to maintain the quality and the integrity of medicinal products. In addition application of the guidelines will prevent counterfeit medicinal products entering the legal distribution chain.

Confrérie Clinique’s Safe-T™ temperature logging device used in trial to reduce wastage of medication.

On an annual basis an estimated 100 million euros worth of unused medication is returned to pharmacies where it is destroyed because it cannot be guaranteed that the medication has been stored under the correct conditions.

The pharmacy in the St. Maartenskliniek in Nijmegen wants to reduce the amount of medication that is wasted. By handing out medication with the Safe-T™ card in sealed bags the pharmacist can determine whether unused medication that is returned has been stored under the correct conditions so that it can be handed out again to other patients. The trial with the Safe-T™ will take place over a period of nine months.
