Course description

Pharmaceutical Law & Administration - QP Module

Pharmaceutical law and administration are key foundation knowledge requirements for all QPs. This course provides comprehensive coverage of the medicinal product legislation in both the EU and UK. The course meets the requirements of the UK QP Study Guide and also provides comprehensive coverage of EU legislation for EU QPs.

Our highly interactive, four-and-a-half-day training course provides aspiring QPs and other pharmaceutical quality professionals the EU and UK pharmaceutical legislation knowledge needed to carry out their duties with skill and authority and to ensure compliance with relevant laws.

Subjects Covered

  • Pharmaceutical legislation in the UK, Europe and the U.S.
  • Regulations and guidance that dictate how we must work on a daily basis
  • Why these laws exist and how they come into being
  • Roles and responsibilities of regulatory agencies
  • The key role that QPs and pharmaceutical professionals must play to ensure compliance with international legislation in the interest of patient safety

This course is approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry and is suitable for its members continuing professional development.
