COMPLIANCE

Quality management is an important part of the Veracity Logic philosophy. Our IRT platform is compliant with 21CFRPart11 and EU Annex 11 regulatory guidances…as well as with international industry standards for good clinical practice and software development. Internal audits conducted semi-annually by senior management, and routine gap analyses by external reviewers help maintain our high quality performance.
