In Ireland, Wholesalers of Medicinal Products for Human Use are obliged to comply with the Medicinal Products Control of Wholesale Distribution Regulations 2007 to 2013 and Directive 2001/83/EC as amended. Persons engaged in wholesale distribution of medicinal products for human use, require a wholesale distribution authorisation (WDA) issued by the HPRA (Health Products Regulatory Authority) and must comply with the relevant Regulations, Directives and guidelines.

The EU have issued GDP guidelines EU2013/C 343/01 outlining the requirements for WDA holders. Section 3.3.1 of the guideline outlines the requirements for Computer System Validation while Section 3.3.2 outlines the requirements for qualification of Key Equipment & Processes.

In Ireland the HPRA have additionally issued further guidance on these requirements in IA-G0046-2 ‘Guide to Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use’. Section 5.9 of this guide provides further clarification from the HPRA on Computer System Validation and Equipment Qualification.
