13th Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Summit - Canada

Hilton Montreal Bonaventure, Montreal, Quebec

February 23 - 26, 2015

Join us again on February 23-26, 2015 in Montreal!

Temperature Control Logistics, Quality & Security Practices for your Commercial and Clinical Supply Chains

Cold Chain in Canada: Future Plans
We surveyed senior supply chain and life sciences executives in Canada to uncover their Budgets, Timelines and Purchasing Forecasts. The infographic includes the top 9 solutions that these senior executives are looking to invest in, such as air freight, data loggers and RFID.

The Latest on Health Canada GDP Guidelines
This year, Health Canada began its 3 year cycle of updating its Guidelines for Temperature Control of Drug Products during Storage and Transportation (GUI-0069). The newest proposed guidelines do not add new obligations, but go into greater depth about monitoring and supervising existing practices.

Global GDP Resource Library
We understand that it is a never-ending challenge to keep up with domestic and international GDP requirements. In advance of the Summit, we created this Global GDP Resource Library that includes 11 articles, infographics, interviews, and source regulatory documents. Also included are links to international regulatory bodies and related GDP guidelines.
