Good Storage and Distribution Practice (GSDP) Inspection

Good Distribution Practices (GSDP) is the part of Quality Assurance that ensures the quality, safety, and efficacy of a medical product is maintained throughout the supply chain until when it reaches the patient.

The requirements of GSDP must be adhered to by all parties involved in the supply chain which include manufacturers, wholesalers, brokers, suppliers, distributors, logistics providers, traders, transport companies and forwarding agents and their employees.

GSDP Inspections are conducted to verify whether dealers in medical products implement the requirements of GSDP. Detailed information on GSDP requirements is provided in the Tanzania Medicines and Medical Devices (Good Storage and Distribution Practices) Regulations, 2021 (Click here to access the regulations).
