Data Integrity in a Nutshell: Industry must take bold steps to assure the data used for drug quality decisions is trustworthy

January 7, 2014 12:31 pm | by Mark E. Newton | Articles | Comments

Regulatory inspectors have started digging much deeper into data, no longer accepting batch release data and supportive testing at face value. Even worse, this effort is justified: they have cited a number of firms for violations of data integrity, a most fundamental bond of trust between manufacturers and the regulators that inspect them. Industry must take bold steps to assure the data used for drug quality decisions is trustworthy...
