    Must, Shall and Should – the use of these words in GMP

    What is the difference in meaning between these words in the context of GMP?, In this post I explain, using EU GMP as my point of reference, although as you will find out, there are occasions within EU GMP where the incorrect terms have been used.

    Data Integrity – why all the fuss?
