Losing GSi – MHRA emails are changing

From 10 April, we are removing .gsi from our email addresses

Launched in 1996, the Government Secure Intranet (GSi) has been used until now to guarantee the security of emails sent by Government agencies and Arms Length Bodies. Technology has changed a lot since 1996 and the GSi is now being phased out across Government.

What’s changing?

From 10 April 2017 we are removing .gsi from our mhra email addresses.  So info@mhra.gsi.gov.uk will now be info@mhra.gov.uk

Our new email addresses will be more secure, and the new system will protect against anyone trying to forge our domain name (the @mhra bit) and sending emails that claim to be from MHRA.

What do I need to do?

Update your MHRA email contacts and remove .gsi from our email addresses.  Update any tools that use MHRA email addresses

Emails sent to email addresses including the .gsi will continue to be forwarded until further notice.

If you have any questions about this change or require more information please contact us on info@mhra.gov.uk

This change only affects email addresses ending in mhra.gsi.gov.uk –all email addresses ending in nibsc.org will remain the same.
