Good Pharmaceutical Distribution Pathway Audit.

Your questions answered….

What is the Good Pharmaceutical Distribution Practice Audit?

This Pathway Audit™ looks at key aspects of good pharmaceutical distribution practice based on one hundred statements under 10 main headings. It is an important benchmark identifying your organisations strengths and weaknesses.

Why use it?

When it comes to pharmaceutical distribution all organisations must be open for inspection by government agencies as well as internal and external quality auditors. Poor distribution practice can have serious consequences for the patient, the reputation of the business, as well as society, and can lead to prosecution.

How do I use it?

Several managers, who have a stake holding in pharmaceutical distribution, fill in the online audit which takes about 20 minutes. It is anonymous, and the outcome is a comprehensive report and a strengths and weakness profile. To reduce bias, we encourage more than one manager to complete the audit.

When do I use it?

The audit is a review and as it is low cost and rapid it can be used once a year or once every two years. It is best used a few months before an inspection so that any weaknesses can be dealt with to improve existing processes.

Where can I find out more information?

Pathway Audits™ are available through Business Enlightenment and you can find out more by visiting Whether you are a client company or a consultant you will discover all you need to know.

Who creates the audits?

Audits are created by our authors, who have both senior corporate and consultancy background and over thirty years of experience. Their knowledge and experience is an invaluable resource.
