APCER Life Sciences Launches Quality Assurance Auditing and Consultancy Services

New offering meets growing demand for expertise in compliance across pharmaceutical companies’ clinical and post-marketing ecosystem

Princeton, New Jersey, UNITED STATES

LONDON, March 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- APCER Life Sciences, the truly global provider of safety, medical, regulatory and technology services, announced today that it will now offer Quality Assurance (QA) Auditing as a stand-alone service. The launch of QA Auditing and Consultancy services from APCER makes available resources knowledgeable in the complex ecosystem of international regulations, internal practices, and external relationships that companies in the pharmaceutical industry seek to ensure global compliance.

“Today’s announcement is really a formalization of a capability that many of our current clients have already taken advantage of,” said Michael Britt, Head of the EU business unit for APCER Life Sciences. “We have grown our global Quality and Compliance organization to the size where we feel confident to offer our specialized expertise to the industry as a stand-alone service apart from support of our operational clients in clinical safety, post-marketing pharmacovigilance, and medical affairs.”

APCER will offer a wide range of audits, such as Good Pharmacovigilance Practice, Good Clinical Practice, and Good Manufacturing Practice, as well as Information Technology & Computer Systems Validation and the increasingly important Vendor Audit. Consultancy in the areas of Quality Risk Management, Inspection Preparation & Training, Mock Inspections, Gap Analysis, Quality Management Systems, and Learning Management is also available.

“Our QA Auditing and Consultancy services draw on the experience of a global team of expert auditors and other QA professionals to help pharmaceutical companies meet their regulatory obligations,” said Luke Keitel, Global Head of Quality and Compliance at APCER Life Sciences. “The offering is in direct response to the escalating complexity and cost of compliance that has driven organisations to outsource more of their audits to specialist service providers."

The announcement of QA Auditing and Consultancy services coincides with the opening of the DIA EuroMeeting 2017, an annual forum that brings together industry, academia, regulators, and patient representatives for thought-provoking sessions and candid discussion of common challenges.  Representatives of APCER Life Sciences, including Michael Britt and Luke Keitel, will be on hand today through Friday, March 31, to debut the offering at Stand E10 in the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow, Scotland.
