Quality & Compliance

Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance oversees study deliverables and ensures our Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are followed and Regulatory compliance is achieved.

Canfield Quality Team

Our team's focus on quality is an integral part of every clinical project. We recognize the importance of quality during every stage of the study to provide every client with data that is credible, reliable, and in alignment with applicable Regulatory requirements. Canfield is committed to the most rigorous standards of project management, quality control and oversight. We ensure all the moving parts of a study are maintained with the study objectives always in mind.

Every client benefits from Canfield's commitment to quality and experience in disciplines including privacy of Protected Health Information, Regulatory process, clinical data management, and computerized system validation. Our independent Quality Assurance department reports directly to the company President and oversees:

  • GCP quality system development and compliance, including overall study-specific compliance
  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliance of Canfield systems, controls, and procedures
  • Compliance with European Directive on Data Protection and Safe Harbor Privacy Principles
  • Creation and review of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), standardized forms and templates, and study-specific procedural documents

The Quality Assurance Team facilitates continuous improvement through internal audits of Clinical Services departments and related study documentation to ensure consistent, defendable quality results.
