SOP Review Services

While expanding businesses to newer markets, life sciences organizations are required to develop new SOPs based on the regional Regulatory requirements or must update/upgrade the existing processes to align them with new demands. But before SOP preparation, the right approach is to identify the gaps between processes and remediate them accordingly.

Freyr is experienced in a range of projects on SOP review services. The simplest part of the service offering is to review existing SOPs for accuracy and provide gap analysis reports to complex projects, which involve SOP review and remediation, resulting in SOP standardization, rationalization, or SOP optimization.

SOP Standardization

As the business grows, the standards to be followed or adhered to will also increase. There will be times when a customer has several standards and regulations to follow, which may include SOPs for safety in the pharmaceutical industry. In such scenarios, maintaining and following different streams of SOPs for each standard will double up the procedural complexities for companies. The need of the hour is to standardize the SOPs.

SOP Rationalization

At times, organizations create SOPs to let go of the audit. But there is no use implementing these. Either they are not followed by employees, or they could make processes complex if integrated. To avoid such situations, it is necessary to rationalize the SOPs that bring some value to the organization.

Freyr provides SOP review services and rationalizes them in addition to adhering to applicable regulations and assists organizations succeed in SOP compliance audits, thus adding real value to the company.

SOP Reconciliation and SOP Optimization

Though there are no guidelines, SOPs must be reviewed at defined and periodic intervals as a general practice. With different formats and versions accumulated, there is always a chance for overlapping and duplication. During such times, organizations must reconcile their SOPs, while continually improving processes to support their growth and business.

With knowledge of SOPs and quality systems, Freyr assists organizations in reconciling and optimizing the SOPs periodically. Our expert compliance team can monitor and carry out incremental updates.

SOP Integration

Mergers and acquisitions are an integral part of the current business scenario. But when they take place, bringing together and managing the procedures, standards, SOPs, and quality systems of both organizations could be grueling. In addition to aligning with the existing standards, setting up SOPs for the newly formed organization can be even more hectic, especially with short TATs.

With an in-house compliance team, Freyr offers end-to-end SOP integration services to analyze the gaps between both organizations’ systems, standardize existing systems, and design new SOPs when needed. Our experts extend system integration support for designing seamless processes and workflows.
