About the GDP Masterclass

GDP Masterclass

On September, 19 PostNL organizes the 5th edition of the GDP Masterclass. This year, with the subject: audits.

During this anniversary edition, which will take place at the recently renovated AZ Sint-Maarten hospital in Mechelen, the keynote speakers will talk extensively about the updated GDP legislation and the way in which GDP audits must be conducted.

What can you expect from the GDP Masterclass 2019?

After attending this masterclass, you are fully aware of all the aspects of GDP audits. Our GDP specialists provide a unique combination of theory and practical cases. This gives you full insight into the issues, latest developments and organization of GDP Audits.

Moreover, the GDP Masterclass is one of the few training courses at an academic level. After participating in this masterclass, you will receive an attendance certificate, from which the training in 2016 and 2017 received official recognition from the Care & Health agency of the Flemish government. Also, this year we strive to achieve this recognition again.

Keynote: The real GDP Audit findings. General GDP checklists are useful for preparing an audit or inspection. Yet these checklists often remain general. In this presentation we will dig deeper per GDP chapter. Based on my experience with GDP audits and inspections, we will go more into detail. In fact, the questions we will handle during my presentation are based on real audit findings and audit inspections. This presentation can be used as an extra checklist during audit preparations.
