What is the role of the MHRA in ensuring the safety of medicinal products?

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is responsible for ensuring the safety, quality, and efficacy of medicinal products in the UK. The MHRA carries out inspections to ensure that pharmaceutical companies are complying with the GDP guidelines and takes appropriate actions if any contraventions are found. The MHRA also monitors the safety of medicinal products after they have been authorised for use in the UK market.
