In Hong Kong, the Authorised Person (AP) must ensure that all legislative obligations are fully satisfied before any pharmaceutical product is released for sale or supply.
It is incumbent upon all APs to discharge their professional duties per the Code of Practice for Hong Kong Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Authorised Persons. It is the responsibility of the AP to certify that a product has been manufactured following its registrable particulars and with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
To become an AP, an individual must meet minimum qualification requirements and demonstrate relevant industry experience in Hong Kong or a country/region whose regulatory authority is a PIC/S Member Authority. In addition, every AP must provide evidence that they have undertaken at least 20 hours per year or equivalent of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training approved by the Department of Health Hong Kong. A registered AP should fulfil the requirements every year for their registration to be renewed.
The Pharmacy and Poisons (Manufacturers Licensing) Committee (the "Committee")* has approved the following range of courses submitted by SeerPharma to be part of Hong Kong’s CPD program for AP’s.
