Press Release

Validation and Compliance minefield – a problem of the past?

Compliance Control
Posted on: 09 Jan 06


A brand new resource which for the first time offers a comprehensive overview of Validation and Compliance data has been launched for the pharmaceutical and life science industries.

ComplianceControl Centre is a unique new Oracle-based software suite that can integrate with any proprietary off-the-shelf or in-house developed systems to provide senior executive and management with real-time control and visibility of the complete Validation and Compliance status of their organisation.

The software has been developed primarily for the life science and pharmaceutical global markets, where compliance and validation in manufacturing, research and development, clinical trials, supply and support systems such as IT are pivotal to the success of a new drug.

The system stores all critical Compliance data in a secure single database which is available and visible - with scalable levels of access - across an organisation. It tracks the status of projects, documents, systems, software, hardware, manufacturing and laboratory equipment. In addition, all project risks, changes, minutes, issues and actions are visible in real-time as is an overall assessment of compliance.
The launch of the ComplianceControl Centre follows a period of extensive research by parent company Compliance Control, which is headed up by David Forrest, an IT and compliance specialist with more than 21 years experience in the pharmaceutical industry.

“Projects undertaken in both existing and emerging markets have provided a very clear indication that controlling Compliance is not only a critical issue but also one where there is a real need for specialist systems and software,” he explained.

“We believe there is a need for such a system in most organisations. Small and medium organisations, for example, cannot afford the various corporate systems available. Very often spreadsheets or ad hoc in-house databases are created and used to ensure Compliance, but these are time consuming and inefficient to maintain and support. The availability of software like this gives them a corporate system at a fraction of the cost and one which can remain as they grow and develop, without demanding regular upgrades and development.

“In the case of larger organisations, many already have policies and procedures in place for Compliance and Validation and many work very well indeed. However, even here, there are often many variations in the systems used and indeed how those systems are used. There’s no doubt that a single central repository for Compliance data would save many large organisations a lot of time and money and allow them real time access to current Key Compliance Indicators. That’s what we believe we have brought to the market.”
