After the British agency MHRA has published three (3) different draft versions of the – MHRA GMP Data Integrity Definitions and Guidance for Industry – in January and March 2015 (GMP) and in July 2016 (Draft for consultation – now for GXP) the final “Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) ‘GXP’ Data Integrity Guidance and Definitions was published in March 2018.
