Facility Inspections & Technical Audits
Assessing Facilities, staff training and competance, procedures
If a regularly used CRO has not been subject to an independent facility inspection in the last 12 months, or if a new facility is to be used for the first time, it may be useful to consider a visit to ensure that staff, facilities and procedures employed meet the required standards of experience, competence and quality.  These assessments are different from Quality Assurance audits because they include a detailed assessment of the scientific practices of the facility in addition to considering GLP compliance.  Many issues which may be of significant technical or regulatory concern to an expert may nonetheless satisfy basic GLP requirements and therefore not be immediately apparent to a QA Auditor.  Resolution recommends conducting such technical audits of all facilities used.
In addition, if a retrospective expert technical review or scientific audit of analytical data is required, for example as a result of receipt of the US FDA letter of 10 Jan 2007 concerning certain studies in support of Approved and Pending Abbreviated ANDAs, Resolution is able to meet this requirement.  Refer to Analytical Data Review for more details of capabilities in this area.
