What is GDPMD?

GDPMD refers to Good Distribution Practice for Medical Devices. It specifies the requirements for a quality management system to be established, implemented and maintained by an establishment in carrying out activities in medical device supply-chain to comply with Malaysian medical device regulatory requirements as stipulated in Medical Device Act 2012 (Act 737). GDPMD requires an establishment to demonstrate its ability to maintain quality, safety and performance of medical devices in compliance with the Malaysian medical device regulatory requirement throughout the supply-chain.

Purpose of Implementation

The aim of GDPMDS is to ensure that companies dealing with medical devices have a quality distribution system in place. This ensures that the quality of the medical devices is maintained throughout the storage and distribution process..

In an effort to provide such assurance, organizations will require more than a few quality manuals. Organization needs to include appropriate procedures, suitably qualified personnel, correct processes / facilities / equipment as well as clear and timely documentation, to credibly demonstrate the consistency of quality assurance.

Organizations certified to ISO 13485 will not need to apply for GDPMD and will find that they have partially fulfilled the GDPMD requirements.

Why you need to be certified with GDPMD?

Benefits for organizations implementing ISO 22000 include: -

  • A licence to trade in the logistics and shipping of medical devices
  • Develop consistent product or service quality, efficiency and cost benefits
