MHRA issued a guidance including the plan to resume on-site inspections next September and scale up to full on-site inspection program in October 2020. Onsite inspections in the UK halted in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have experienced any disruption to your clinical research due to COVID-19, please feel free to contact us for advice and support. Meditrial has direct connections with UK Investigators, hospitals and local Ethics Committees. 


  • inspections at short or no notice: MHRA staff will discuss risk-mitigation measures upon their arrival
  • pre-announced inspections: MHRA’s lead inspector will discuss risk assessment and logistics with the targeted organization to ensure compliance with government requirements.
  • industries can implement technologies that enable remote access to information where possible. Videoconferencing may be used to interview a company’s employees.

For more details, please see the guidance from the MHRA.
