Laboratory Audit

Technical ability, GLP compliance and animal welfare

Guidance for Notified Bodies auditing suppliers to medical device manufacturers indicates that a critical supplier is a supplier delivering materials, components, or services that may influence the safety and performance of the device. Contract Research Organisations (CROs) who conduct biocompatibility or extractable/leachable testing may therefore be considered as a critical supplier and audited/approved as part of your quality management system.

We have extensive experience in auditing laboratories around the world for technical ability, GLP compliance and animal welfare. We can audit laboratories on your behalf and make recommendations as to their suitability as a critical supplier. Some of the areas we focus on include:

  • Technical ability
  • Scientific integrity
  • SOPs
  • QA process
  • GLP Compliance
  • Animal facilities/welfare
  • Study reporting
