The MHRA and the European GDP Guideline of 5 November 2013 require that, in order to gain and retain a Wholesale Dealer’s Licence (WDA) licence, wholesale pharmaceutical distributors must designate a Responsible Person (RP) for Good Distribution of Medicinal (GDP) who must be named on the licence. The responsibilities and liabilities of the RP remain the same whether the Responsible person is employed directly by the licence holder or is an independent contractor.
According to the MHRA, the RP is responsible for “safeguarding product users against potential hazards arising from poor distribution practices”. The duties and responsibilities of a RP includeensuring that the provisions of the licence are fulfilled by means of GDP and GMP compliance and best practice within all regulated activities, a compliant quality system is established and maintained and a suitable document control system is in place to ensure that adequate records are maintained. In addition, the RP will need to oversee the audit of the quality system, carry out independent audits and cooperate with the product licence holder and regulatory authorities with regard to drug returns and product recalls.
In order to carry out his/her duties, the RP should have knowledge of the products being traded under the licence and the conditions necessary for their safe storage and distribution. The RP should have access to all areas and records which relate to the licensable activities and regularly review and monitor all such areas.

Brighton is a large, cosmopolitan city in East Sussex on the South Cost of England 50 miles south of London and 15 miles from Worthing. Transports links with regular trains from Brighton to London Victoria, the A23 leading to the M25 and London Gatwick airport only 28 miles away. The city has been a very popular seaside resort since the Georgian era when the Price Regent constructed the exotic Royal Pavilion. The Victorian Palace pleasure pier offers traditional candy floss, fish & chips and deckchairs in contrast to the ultra-modern British Airways i360, the highest moving observation platform in the world. Brighton is also famous for its huge selection of quirky shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and bars as well as its pulsating nightlife. From a business point of view, Brighton has several large conference and exhibition venues and has recently been dubbed Silicon Beach due to the huge number of digital media companies that are based in the city.
