About GMP+ 2020 – Transition to the new standard & what this means for you
During this training, participants will receive a general introduction of GMP+, the why’s and how’s of the standard and its objectives. After this introduction, we will provide a deeper dive into the scopes of the standard and the main challenges in complying with the standard.

We will discuss the most important changes as compared with the old standard and the effort required to comply with these. Special attention will be given to the opportunities offered by the new system and what this could mean for your operations.
