The HRA will continue to use the Initial Assessment Letter and the HRA Approach Letter to provide NHS Participating Organisations with clarification on the sponsor`s stated intention with regard to the use of the MIA or the inclusion of the equipment allowance in the location agreement. The Master Indemnity Register is a list of suppliers who have entered into an agreement with NHSScotland to release NHSScotland from liability if they receive equipment from a supplier on loan, free edition or trial version (without financial payment). If suppliers are registered on the MIA and have valid liability and product liability insurance, as indicated in the register, a MIA delivery note must be signed to confirm acceptance of the goods in accordance with the conditions of the MIA. The MIA Data Protection Protocol is a new document that has been put in place to help health authorities comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. To be included in the MIA register, please enter your company data in the filling fields via the Link Master Indemnity Agreement [PDF – 117Kb]. Please email this document as a PDF document to John.Slater@nhs.scot Follow the information to be provided to suppliers for MIA membership [PDF – 688Kb] and send us the signed agreement in pdf format by email. Please do not print the document or send it. The latest update confirms that the MIA is not appropriate when the device is in a clinical trial (if insurance and compensation agreements were to be entered into under the Model Clinical Trials Agreement (MCIA). It provides further clarification on the fact that MIA can be used when equipment is made available for a research project, when these devices are not being researched. This allows the sponsor to use the MIA system instead of agreeing on insurance and equipment compensation agreements under the localization agreement (e.g.
.B Standard Clinical Trials Contract (MCTA), Model Non-Commercial Research Agreement (mNCA), etc.). The Master Indemnity Agreement (MIA) is designed as a framework agreement to meet the requirements of NHSScotland services with regard to delivered equipment and other goods: the MIA is an agreement between NHS organisations in England and suppliers who provide equipment free of charge, either on loan or permanently. .
