In the spring of 2015, my firm had a significant FDA audit with serious findings concerning sterility assurance and data integrity. We had utilized Validant for a previous engagement successfully. Before the audit concluded, I was already in contact with the Validant team for assistance. I was very impressed by how quickly they orchestrated data integrity audits at all of our 20+ other sites. We then turned to them for assistance with our third-party oversight of our manufacturing operation and quality control laboratories.
