What is Pharmaceutical GDP?

Pharmaceutical GDP encompasses Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP: standards for manufacturing and quality control of pharmaceuticals and quasi-drugs), and connects manufacturers with users (approved or qualified pharmacies or others to supply to patients), throughout all distribution stages, ensures the quality of pharmaceutical products and prevents counterfeit or tampered products from entering the market.

In December 2018, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan issued the Japanese version of the GDP (Good Food Distribution Standards) guideline. Although the guideline is not legally binding and only encourages voluntary efforts of each drug distributor, pharmaceutical companies as well as drug distributors operating in Japan are required to implement GDP standards in their logistics and warehouse storage handlings. JET8 is committed to implement globally required GDP standards in Japan.
