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.
Looking into the history of the document and content the major changes have been to replace and extend from “GMP” to GXP (covering GCP, GDP, GLP, GMP and GPvP). All this GXP areas had already requirements for data integrity or study integrity or similar for many years and are covered by European EMA regulations, directives and the EMA EudraLex Volumes or other regulations (e.g. chemical for GLP). The second change was the title “Guidance for Industry” to a “Guide“. Maybe the document type “Guidance for Industry” would remind you to US regulations and you are right. But in the EU such a document type in a regulatory structure and understanding is also not known. Maybe the roots of the first versions were coming from US or consultants or authors from this region. In general an own opinion might be better as to listen to any opinion-makers with commercial interests. Continue reading “MHRA’s GXP data integrity guide published – March 2018”

Seriously, who will review the Audit Trail Review? First who will execute the Audit Trail Review? An internal Quality role – in the course of the batch by batch execution and review of records, during internal inspections or during an regulatory inspection preparation? Or weekly, bi-monthly or every third batch – or simply just all audit trails created by a system?
And who will analyze in detail and finally judge the results of the Audit Trail Review?

In 2016 a lot of questions were asked about the good old Audit Trail and about the new topic of the so called “Audit Trail Review”. CCS has published a concept paper for an Audit Trail Specification and some considerations for the Audit Trail Review approach.
- What is an Audit Trail – in the GMP context of the PQS?
- What is the difference of a log and a GMP Data Audit Trail?
- What is an Audit Trail Review good for? How often? Why?
- What should be reviewed – function or data? What are the results – knowledge management?
- Detection of data manipulation? Data Audit Trail or Activity Trail required?
- Which data should be audit trailed and which one should be reviewed?
- What are CPPs, CQAs, system parameters and/or master data / meta data?
- How should a specification look like for a real GMP Data Audit Trail?
- Why is the reason for change so important for a real GMP Data Audit Trail?
- User roles and concept: Different types for the role Administrator?
- GMP documentation with instructions and records vs. electronic data?
- What is GMP critical data and knowledge management – on product and process level?
- Which roles should be audit trailed and when and if so, how?
- Is the Audit Trail Review executed manually or automatically?
