Outsourcing Computer Systems Validation

Validation projects are often time-consuming, high-risk, demanding in terms of resources and therefore very expensive. That’s why QbD offers a standarized solution for your systems applications: we apply standardisation and compliance in a timely and cost-effective manner. We provide everything you need, whether you are implementing your system for the first time, moving from a legacy system or applying operational change control.

Maximize your return on investment

Why outsourcing is the right answer? Our validation solution guarantees maximum return on investment by delivering the following key benefits:

  • Quicker delivery times: by using our best practices, we help to accelerate your validation effort. These best practices are based on years of experience in SAP validation.
  • Cost-effective: any system implementation is a large investment, and even more when validation is required. With our validation solution, we aim to keep your validation budget under control.
  • Regulatory authorities’ approval: state-of-the-art validated computers systems will stand the test during audits and inspections. Regulatory issues can be time-consuming and troubling events that carry many business risks, such as delays in authority’s approval of new products.

The benefits of standardization

The validation solution outsourcing was created based upon the QbD Group’s extensive life science industry knowledge and know-how amassed from years and years of experience within pharmaceutical, biotech, medical devices and ATMP enterprises. QbD Group’s compliance validation solution helps you to comply with local and international regulations (e.g. FDA 21CFR part 11, EMA Annex 11, COFEPRIS and INVIMA) in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Our validation solution helps you to be confident and to fully trust the systems you are using. It provides all evidence required to demonstrate that the intended use of the application is aligned with your business processes.

We make sure the systems are doing what they meant to do, and most important: that there is no impact on patient safety, product quality or data integrity.
