The MHRA GDP Symposium held in London on Monday 19th November 2018 seems to be about the changes forthcoming for one reason or another.

Obviously, we all aware of the changes that will be inflicted with Brexit looming over us and the requirements set for FMD. However, company owners that hold a WDA or wishing to obtain one may be interested to know the changes in MHRA inspection fees.

During the symposium it was announced that MHRA inspection fees will be reduced (when exactly, that wasn’t mentioned). This does come with its reasons; any inspection that results with further administration work or referral for review to IAG or CMT for a follow up review will inflict addition fees. It is not yet known the exact costs involved nor when the changes will be enrolled but what we do know is that you need to make sure you’re complying otherwise cough up!

What does this mean for those with a WDA or those wanting a WDA? Make sure you are GDP compliant at all angles, so you save yourself from the newly announced additional costs from MHRA inspectors, as well as the hassle of a reoccurring quick inspection.

To be fair, it is a good idea as wholesalers should be more vigilant to ensure their wholesaling business do not incur additional costs.
