Is your software product built on par with Regulatory requirements? Has it been evaluated for successful functioning? How many quality gates did it come through for a final compliant version? Did it complete all the stages of software development lifecycle? If you are puzzled with the afore mentioned queries, validation should be the answer. Whenever a software/system is built or planned for development, validation is an integral part to be looked upon. Organizations should basically check these points to certify your product is properly validated. Right from building a software to reaching compliant version, organizations may, sometimes, face difficulties in completing the entire validation lifecycle.

From large projects to mid-size to temporary requirements, Freyr works hand-in-hand with clients from a concept to software to ensure their products meet necessary Regulatory requirements.

Temporary engagements

At times, your organizations’ system might have been claimed as properly validated by vendors. But with lack of evidence or documentation and with inadequate electronic signatures, they might be rated as incompliant with GxP and ERES. In addition, you might encounter incomplete audit trail.
