Inspection Survival Guide: Being Prepared for an MHRA GCP Inspection


Statutory GCP inspections conducted by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are an important part of the regulation of clinical trials in the UK. Anyone who sponsors, conducts or supports a clinical trial in humans involving an investigational medicinal product (CTIMP) or a medical device may find themselves face-to-face with an MHRA inspector. What an inspector will be looking for is evidence that trials have been conducted in compliance with applicable legislation and the principles of GCP. It is a daunting prospect for many, but an understanding of what to expect and how to prepare can help smooth the process and lead to a successful inspection outcome.
