COVID-19 Library

GCP Europe members are facing the COVID 19 situation at national level. Below there is a list of public documentation provided by our national associations. Of course, each country will have their own formal policies and will be promulgating advice and guidance to their entire population. These always prevail and any other document, whether from the industry or any other source, must always be seen in that light. The views and opinions contained in the documents listed on this page belong solely to their authors and are not to be considered as recommendations from GCP Europe.
