We are thrilled to welcome Ex MHRA Inspector Alan Moon as an Independent Consultant at EPiC Auditors.
Alan Moon began his career in the pharmaceutical industry in February 1994 and has extensive experience of pharmaceutical manufacture, particularly associated with sterile products and investigational medicinal products (IMPs). He spent approximately 19 years working within the pharmaceutical industry before joining the UK Medicines Regulator (MHRA) in 2013.
During his ten years at MHRA Alan reached the level of Lead Senior Inspector and in addition to supporting the GMP Inspectorate’s risk-based inspection programme and being the nominated chair for the Compliance Management Team, he was also the technical lead within the GMP team for both sterile products and IMPs.
He was the principal UK representative for the GMP Annex 1 drafting group from 2019 through to its publication in August 2022, and continued to support the associated PIC/S inspector training group and participate in conferences on the subject until leaving the Agency in March 2023.
Alan was also part of the EU working group for the revision and update to GMP Annex 13 and as part of the UK’s exit from the EU, he prepared the framework and guidance for implementation of the UK MIA(IMP) oversight process for the import of QP-certified IMPs from listed countries into Great Britain, and the associated aspects relating to the Northern Ireland Protocol.
Prior to joining the MHRA GMP Inspectorate, Alan worked in a variety of roles within the pharmaceutical industry, including QA, QC Microbiology, Sterility Assurance, Validation and Production, with significant experience of aseptic and terminal sterilisation manufacturing processes.
Alan’s exceptional skills, extensive experience, and unique expertise make him the perfect addition to our team.
