Why is MHRA approval important?

Pharmaceuticals and medical products require expert handling to ensure that they arrive in an unaltered condition. Every part of the process, from storage to transportation and delivery, needs to be carefully controlled.

MHRA-Approved Couriers PDQ Cold Call UKBy using an MHRA-approved courier provides you with the confidence that you have chosen a company that meets the exacting standards of the government-led agency – the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The MHRA is a part of the UK government’s Department of Health and Social Care. Part of its role is to ensure the enforcement of high standards in facilities where pharmaceuticals and other medical products are stored or transported.

Stringent criteria regarding health, safety and security have to be met in order for MHRA-approved status to be granted to a courier company. Companies transporting medicinal and other similar products will be trained to a very high level in order to achieve their MHRA accreditation.

Patient safety is of utmost concern to the MHRA. Certain pharmaceutical and other medical goods need to be stored in controlled conditions to ensure that their condition does not degrade. Chilled transportation and monitoring is required for many goods of this type. MHRA accreditation is a stamp of approval, not only about quality temperature control, but also other key assessment areas including storage premises and security of transportation vehicles.
