Risk-Based Approaches

Establishing a robust, risk-based approach to quality and regulatory compliance is one of the keys to success in today’s regulated industry. In order to stay on the cutting edge of current methodologies, CQV staff are consistently engaged in a wide-variety of industry committees, task groups, and conferences with special emphasis on risk-based approaches. We maintain memberships in respected groups such as PDA, ISPE/GAMP, IVT and ASQ; these professional communities are collectively setting the standards for today’s risk-based quality management. Guided by our depth of experience we actively contribute to the evolution of current guidance and regulatory interpretation on topics related to 21 CFR Part 11, Corrective And Preventative Action (CAPA), and Risk-Based Approaches to quality and regulatory compliance. CQV staff have also published several papers.

In addition to our professional affiliations, we also maintain relationships with premier compliance consulting companies representing hundreds of consultants worldwide:
