Pharmaceutical Legislation Update Subscription Service

About This Service

You can register for this service all year round! Pharmaceutical legislation and regulatory authority guidance are continually changing. These changes, and their interpretation, can have significant implications for companies. Many changes require detailed planning to implement and failure to do so can result in serious compliance problems.

This pharmaceutical regulatory training provides you with 12 months of updates of changes to legislation and guidance that have the potential to impact the manufacture and distribution of medicinal/drug products. Full updates will be provided in February and September, with interim summaries in May and December. The updates will be provided as recordings through NSF’s online LMS portal and can be viewed at a time convenient to you. To access the recorded updates, we will create an account for you on our LMS and as each update is made available you will receive an enrolment email giving you a link to access the material. There will also be an opportunity for Q&A with Pete Gough through live two-hour virtual meetings each quarter.

This training provides essential information for Qualified Persons and other quality professionals employed by organizations that manufacture or distribute medicinal/drug products.

This service is Royal Society of Chemistry approved as suitable for its members’ continuing professional development (CPD).
