Different type of audit offered are as below.

1. System & Facility Audit:


To evaluate the capabilities of CRO/Site to conduct BA/BE study in compliance with GCP Standards and various specific regulatory requirements. Our detailed 360 Degree approach given a complete picture of CRO/Site with respect to compliance with current Good Clinical Practice and Good Laboratory Practice and applicable regulatory and ethical guidelines. This is also a regulatory requirement to qualify the CRO/Vendor with a detailed Audit before outsourcing any trial or study to ensure the GCP in Clinical Research/ Trials.


Before outsourcing any BABE/Clinical Trial/Study in any Contract research organisation. It is required to qualify the CRO/vendor for compliance level and quality services.

What is Scope?
  • Complete review of the system and facility as per the regularity requirement including all the departments like clinical, Bioanalytical, PK, QA, IT, Admin, HR, vendors
  • Past inspection Track Records
  • Past inspection and experience
  • All SOPs and documentation
  • Interview of employees
  • Resource management and capability
  • Specific Experience

2. Site Feasibility/Qualification Audit:


To select qualified Investigators or hospital sites for conducting clinical trials. Which is also known as “pre-study qualification visits” or “site visits” and to determine the investigative site’s ability to conduct the clinical study.

We also recommend verification of Site Qualification done by Trial CRO.


Generally, site qualification is performed before the commencement of the trial or phase study. It is also essential to requalify the site at a certain interval to assess their capability to conduct the trial.

What is Scope?
  • Patient pool capacity
  • Training and qualification of investigator
  • Past experience
  • Resource management
  • Availability of CRC
  • Document management

3. Regulatory Compliance Audit:


Independent audit of a clinical trial is an important element of GCP in Clinical Research. Trial Audit is completely independent and separate from the monitoring, quality Assurance, quality control done by the CRO.

The whole purpose of Clinical Trial Audit is to evaluate the conduct and the level of compliance with the protocol, GCP, SOPs and the specific regulatory requirements. Mostly to,

  • Ensure Protection of subjects;

What is Scope?
  • Complete study source data review
  • CSR/ASR reports review
  • Solution to all the observation noticed
  • Supporting data like logbook, forms, formats, certificates, calibration record, validation, vendor qualifications, COAs, Training records, CVs etc.

6. For-Cause Investigation:


To identify the root cause of the problem or failure and to Implement solutions by corrective and preventive actions with use of advanced root cause analysis techniques. To trace the progression of events that led up to the incident. To design a way forward after failure.


When unexpected results were obtained for the study and failed by a margin. When abnormal concentration obtained which led to the failure of the study.
