Experts from the Department of Regulation and Pre-qualification of the WHO headquarters provided detailed explanations on the nine principles of the GRP and their implementation requirements, as well as the development, implementation, and monitoring of the RPI. They also introduced the specific practices of relevant countries and regions and participated in discussions with trainees on specific cases.

The training was organized by the NMPA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Center for Food and Drug Inspection and co-organized by the Yunnan provincial medical products administration. Officials of related NMPA departments and affiliated institutions participated the training. Related officials from medical products administrations at the provincial level across China participated in the training online.
