GDP Accreditation Program

Through PCSC, HDA launched a Good Distribution Practices (GDP) Accreditation Program, a first of its kind in the United States. The GDP Accreditation Program seeks to provide pharmaceutical supply chain trading partners, primarily those providing vendor services — such as transportation, warehousing, freight-forwarding, customs brokerage, 3PL and cargo insurance — the ability to demonstrate familiarization and adherence to recognized GDP operational and training criteria. Complying with these standards can help mitigate distribution deviations.

HDA PCSC Educational Seminar

The 2024 PCSC Educational Seminar is scheduled for April 3-4, 2024 at the Hanover Marriott. More information can be found here.

The PCSC's signature annual educational event brings together those within healthcare, as well as many other industries, that ship and store sensitive, high-risk/high-value products — anywhere in the world. Held annually since 2006, this supply chain security educational event provides interactive instruction, with both indoor and outdoor activities, as well as case-study discussions and “table-top” simulation exercises. Attendees are introduced to government law enforcement and regulatory personnel (and vice-versa) to enhance knowledge of supply chain security best practices.
