Temperature Mapping Study (Classroom, 3 days)


Temperature mapping is a process of identifying the differences and changes in temperature that occur within a designated storage area. A temperature mapping exercise for any new temperature-controlled storage area shall be carried out before its use, according to the international regulations such as WHO, EU Good Distribution Practices Guidelines (GDP) and International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE). During this course you will gain theoretical and practical knowledge on how to conduct a temperature mapping study related to storage areas designated for temperature-controlled healthcare products.

This course is available at IATA Training Centers and Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-house training.
