Post-Market Compliance

After a product enters the market, there are still many areas to address to remain compliant. These areas include packaging, labeling, and of course, the manufacturing! And this could include a myriad of activities that range from warehousing and distribution to sterile vs. non-sterile environments. Our company has the knowhow and expertise to delve into the details of each of these areas and help companies STAY compliant throughout the life cycle of the drug or device.

An example for post market activities for Analytical Labs includes Stability Programs. Stability methods, the chamber qualification, and personnel all make up a good stability program. Not only does USDM audit stability rooms routinely for proper mapping of RH and temperature, but also the qualification data, stability-indicating methods, training and overall programs as well as provide guidance.

USDM is also highly experienced in Part 11 compliance in all types of systems including MES, HMI’s, PLCs, SCADAs, and other types of hardware, to SAP, CRMs, IVRS and desktop off-the-shelf systems.
