Companies (such as third party logistics companies) involved with storage and distribution of CTGTP, investigational CTGTP, or starting materials used for the manufacture of CTGTP, may apply for the GDP certificate for CTGTP.

The GDP certificate is valid for 3 years from the date of audit. Companies are advised to apply for a new certificate at least 3 months prior to the anticipated date for the GDP inspection to allow sufficient time to schedule for a GDP inspection.
