GxP compliance is imperative for all businesses in the Life Science industry; and for good reason – to protect consumers like you and me. But some companies are doing better than others at ensuring food and product safety and data integrity. What’s their competitive edge? A well-rounded partnership with advanced compliance needs providers. And we’re breaking down what you should look for in a GxP compliance partner into the following 3Cs to help you get in on that advantage.
First and foremost, find a prospective partner that can provide all of your compliance needs across your product or service life cycle. Selecting a partner with end-to-end services covering the central pillars of GxP – safety, traceability, and accountability, will not only create a more seamless regulatory process flow but also save your business as much as 1,300 hours in time and labor costs from executing compliance initiatives in silos yearly.
In your search for a partner, look for these offerings:
To further gage the capabilities and ensure the qualifications of your choice GxP compliance partner, take a good look at their institution-awarded certifications. More often than not, these certifications are a reliable measure of a company’s proficiency and abilities in different compliance categories. Take advantage of them to fast track your partner evaluation process and to make more sound decisions in your selection process.
Before signing any contracts, look for these important certifications:
Last but not the least, consider if the candidate compliance partner actively makes an effort to keep up with or, better yet, get ahead of the times. Chances are, lack of consistent reform in their standard compliance strategies translate to higher risks of non-compliance. A simple inquiry on the novelty and timeliness of their approach to compliance as well as the codified standards they follow can save you from choosing a compliance partner that’s stuck in the past and paying for jurassic programmes.
Though taking these extra steps into consideration can seem tedious, being diligent and attentive to these 3Cs can bring you a rewarding partnership that ushers you into the competitive compliant edge. Together with an all-around partner, you can make GxP work to your competitive advantage and fast track all the opportunities technology has to offer.
