UK GLP Legislation - Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

With effect from 2013, the MHRA GxP Consultative Committee  meetings are to be consolidated into a single MHRA meeting. This meeting will be named the Stakeholder Engagement Meeting (StEM) to better reflect the proposed purpose of the meeting. It is anticipated that industry members will have more direct input in the future, either by raising topics or giving presentations on technical areas or other areas requiring an MHRA perspective.
