Davies International Transport Warehousing and Storage


Temperature-controlled transport is a crucial aspect of pharmaceutical logistics, and ensuring compliance with regulatory expectations is more important than ever. With the increasingly unpredictable weather patterns we are experiencing, it’s essential to be aware of the requirements set forth by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) regarding temperature control and monitoring during transportation. Let’s delve into the key considerations and guidelines outlined in the Rules and Guidance for Pharmaceutical Distributors 2022 (The Green Guide) and explore how Davies International can support you in maintaining compliance.

Adherence to MHRA Guidelines:

Chapter 9 of The Green Guide, a part of the EU Guidelines on Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and UK Guidance on Wholesale Distribution, covers Transportation and outlines the expectations for pharmaceutical distributors. It emphasises the importance of maintaining the required storage conditions specified by the manufacturer during transportation. To ensure compliance, it is crucial to have written procedures in place for the operation and maintenance of vehicles used for transporting medications. Additionally, a documented procedure should be established to manage temperature excursions, including investigation and corrective measures to prevent future occurrences.

Responsibility of Wholesale Distributors:

The responsibility for ensuring the packaging, transportation, and handling of medicinal products lie with the supplying wholesale distributor. It is their duty to ensure that the products are fit for use and free from any quality compromising defects. This involves validating and documenting the use of passive packaging and implementing written procedures to ensure the correct reuse of cool packs.
