Computer System Validation (CSV)

Regulated companies like yours are mandated by the FDA, Health Canada, MHRA, EMA and other regulatory bodies to perform Computer Systems Validation. CSV can be complex, time-consuming, costly, and risky.  However, not properly validating your scientific software systems can result in:

  • Warning letters – 483
  • Consent decree(s)
  • Lawsuits / Fines
  • Plant shutdown
  • Indictments
  • Economic instability
  • Staff downsizing
  • Bankruptcy
  • Product recall
