3-day (24 hours) classroom course
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 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.
