The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency regulates medicines, medical devices and blood components for transfusion in the UK. They are recognised globally as an authority in its field, and the agency plays a leading role in protecting and improving public health and supports innovation through scientific research and development.
Cogent Skills alongside the MHRA have developed a new Gold Standard role profile for Responsible Person in Medicinal Products which in turn has led to the agreement of a training standard which is recognised by the MHRA.
The Responsible Person Gold Standard sets out an industry agreed framework that identifies the skills required by a Responsible Person in
four skills areas. This spread of skills ensures that the role includes not only the traditional qualifications and technical requirements but also the behavioural skills required to do the job to a high standard. These include business improvement, leadership and communication. The training standard shows what good training entails to meet the Gold Standard competencies.
Cogent Skills can now offer official recognition that your training meets these standards, as well as provide certificates which will feature the MHRA logo to individuals who have undertaken the assured Gold Standard training.
