I attended the HSRAA (Health Sciences Records and Archives Association) Conference in Manchester, England. The conference focused on life science records management processes, the establishment and management of GxP archives, and the lifecycle management of regulated records. Featured speakers presented on several relevant topics including conformance with industry self-regulatory organizational recordkeeping standards and regulatory requirements including GxP and the very recent and complex EU Medical Device Regulations (MDR & IVMDR).

The conference attendees, speakers, and city of Manchester were good to me. I met many new records management industry professionals and took the time to meet with several established Zasio clients.

My only regret is not planning better. I could have caught the Derby (Man U v. Man City) had I departed a day or two later.
