Inspections and audits

All licenced premises are subject to inspection by the Human Tissue Authority as the enforcement authority under the Human Tissue Act, or by agencies acting on its behalf. To ensure that the University is meetings its obligations under the Act, it has initiated its own internal audit programme of licensed premises (see table below). 

The audit is led by the Head of Research Governance with support from Designated Individuals (Dis) who cross-audit each other’s licences. A risk based audit schedule has been agreed and HTA licenses will be audited every 2 years on a rotating basis. Audit findings are shared with the PVC Research, Dean, Head of School, Licence Holder and Chair of the HTWG as well as DIs. The Research Governance Team works in collaboration with DIs to ensure actions arising from the audits are addressed and best practice highlights will be made available to the HTWG. Audits will be conducted in line with the HTA Code of Practice and Standards
