To enhance WCA Pharma’s commitment to GDP compliance

Bangkok, Thailand, Friday October 12th 2018 – WCA and ASC Associates Ltd are pleased to announce a strategic partnership designed to enhance WCA’s continuing commitment for compliance and logistical innovation in the Pharmaceutical sector.

WCA Pharma selected ASC for its one-day Good Distribution Practice (GDP) training course for their Pharma GDP Training held at the World Specialty Logistics Fair in Bangkok, Thailand.

ASC’s suite of training includes GDP for Medicinal Products, which has been designed for the logistics industry to enhance compliance within the supply chain. Working in partnership, ASC will offer their expertise in GDP and supply chain security to WCA members.

“We have big plans for a close collaboration across several networks, even looking at creating a WCA Academy in the near future,” said Adam McKenna, General Manager of WCA Pharma.

“It’s clear that there is value in what we’re doing. Each time we host a training session, space is filled weeks in advance and our members achieve impressive high scores.”

Amy Shortman, Chief Executive Officer of ASC stated: “We are delighted to have been selected by WCA to offer our services and suite of training to their members.

“Over the coming months we hope to expand services and training to include courses such as: Anti-bribery and Corruption, Supply Chain Security, and Risk Assessments.”

WCA is especially grateful to ASC for helping host such a successful session.

“The numbers speak for themselves,” said McKenna. “With 42 participants and a 100 per cent success rate, we’re ensuring that our members are ready and able to handle this business above other forwarders who may not have planned in advance.”

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
