On 6 October 2021, the VMD welcomed 46 delegates to its first Introduction to Veterinary Wholesale Qualified Person training day.

This one-day event was delivered by VMDs highly experienced inspectors using a blend of lectures, discussion, and practical activities.

It is important that VMD offers training to existing Wholesale Qualified Persons (WQPs) and those looking to become one. This focussed course for wholesale QPs is the first of its kind offered by VMD following their recent survey of the veterinary medicines industry and its training needs.

Abi Seager, VMDs CEO said:

We are committed to helping our stakeholders fully understand their legal obligations and providing training courses and platforms for questions is a fantastic enabling opportunity.

John Millward, VMDs Head of Inspection Division, said:

Were really pleased to have delivered this training course for Wholesale QPs and we are already looking for opportunities to repeat this event.

The topics that were covered throughout the day included: The Veterinary Medicines Regulations, Good Distribution Practice Guidelines, Quality Management Systems, effective self-inspections, staff training, validation of suppliers and customers, how to handle product recalls, and much more.
