If you operate in a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) environment, then your warehouses for starting materials and finished products are regulated and your staff need to be clear on the rules and how to apply them.

SeerPharma offers this training course to help ensure your warehouse operations are GMP-compliant and that your organisation is protecting patient safety by ensuring product quality through Good Warehouse Practice (GWP).
