The Health Sciences Records and Archives Association runs the following training courses

GxP-Regulated Archives and the GxP Archivist

  • This training course covers the role of the archivist and the operation of the archive. It is suitable for archivists who have recently joined the profession or wish to refresh their knowledge of good archiving practice.
  • The course is aimed primarily at those in a regulatory archive environment (GLP, GCP, GMP) but is also beneficial for those working in research archives.
  • The course is delivered as online training.

Course outline

The primary focus of this course is on the implementation of archive procedures within an organisation and the operation of an archive in compliance with GxP (GLP, GCP, GMP). Previously, separate courses were offered for GLP Archivists and for GCP Archivists. The courses have now been combined into a single course as 90% of the content was the same for both courses. It is also beneficial for professional development to understand how GLP and GCP requirements differ from each other and from other requirements. The principles of archiving covered in this course are also relevant for any research or scientific archive. Topics covered are:

  • GxP Records Management Principles
  • Archive-related GxP Regulations
  • The GxP Archivist
  • The GxP Archive
  • Outsourcing GxP Archives

Booking and cancellation policy


Bookings are made only through the online booking facility on the HSRAA website. Payment may be made by online payment when making the booking, or an invoice can be sent for offline payment. Payment must be received prior to the date of the event.

Health Sciences Records and Archives Association members are entitled to a discount on the booking fee for most events.

The code to activate the discount is shared with members by email and the ‘Members Area’ of the HSRAA website, and should not be made available to anyone else.


It is necessary to have a cancellations policy, because some costs such as room and meal/refreshment bookings are not reimbursed by venues if there is a late cancellation.  Our cancellation policy is aligned with the cancellation policy of the venue(s) that we use, to ensure that HSRAA is not disadvantaged by cancellations being made. Additionally, fees and an administrative burden are incurred by HSRAA for the processing of payments (and refunds). The following is set out in the  current Meetings and Conferences Policy.

If a delegate cancels his/her registration, the following applies:

  • Cancellation within 60 days of event, no refund is payable (100% cancellation fee)
  • Cancellation between 61 – 84 days, 25% refund payable (75% cancellation charge)
