Validation

Stay Compliant, Stay Confident

In today’s regulatory landscape, software validation is not just an option — it’s a necessity. Validated software is a key requirement, mandated by regulatory bodies like the WHO Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations and the EMA Guideline on computerized systems and electronic data in clinical trials.

At Flex Databases, we understand the importance of compliance and accuracy in clinical trials. Our validation process ensures that all computerized systems used within a clinical trial consistently meet specified requirements, ensuring reliability and intended performance throughout the product’s lifecycle.
