It’s time for an FDA audit. Will your site pass the test?

Clinical trial sponsors need to know that each of their sites is operating according to protocol, GCP, and FDA requirements. Likewise, sites and CROs interested in attracting new studies must demonstrate their ability to meet these requirements. Validation is the fastest, most affordable way for everyone to be assured that trials are fully-compliant.

David Nettleton, author and FDA compliance expert, detailed the 14-step process used to validate computer systems used in clinical trials and explain the roles that vendors, sites, and sponsors must play in the process. Next, Renee Petrie of DatStat discussed how the validation process supports the drive to reduce study duration and lower costs.

Key topics
