Comprehensive new content includes:
• qualification of suppliers and customers
• parallel importation and parallel distribution
• temperature control and monitoring
• UK legislation
• unlicensed medicines

There are new MHRA sections on:
• GMP for excipients
• guidance on revised Annex 16 of GMP
• data Integrity definitions and guidance for industry

Plus new Commission guidance on:
• principles and guidelines of GMP for active substances
• principles of GDP of active substances
• setting health based exposure limits
• formalised risk assessment for ascertaining the appropriate GMP for excipients.

The work includes EU regulation on safety features for medicines, along with two Commission Q&As on the importation of active substances and safety features for medicinal products.

A new appendix on sources of useful information has also been added.

The Orange Guide is essential reading for anyone subject to MHRA inspection, providing you with all the answers you need to stay informed.
