MHRA Publish 'GxP Data Integrity Guide'

13th March 2018

Covering Good Clinical Practice, Good Distribution Practice, Good Laboratory Practice, Good Manufacturing Practice and Good Pharmacovigilance Practice, there has been significant stakeholder interest in the development of the guide. MHRA received over 1300 comments from industry, and trade and professional groups across all GxPs during the consultation process. Such a high degree of engagement required an extended period of review by the MHRA’s GxP data integrity team formed from their GCP, GDP, GLP, GMP and GPvP inspection groups.
