Risk-based CQV activities are critical to compliance in highly regulated industries.

With an increased focus on compliance, speed to market, and equipment reliability, CQV or verification activities have never been more important. As a leader of manufacturing and packaging solutions within the Life Sciences industry, Verista specializes in and provides comprehensive risk-based verification strategies comprised of commissioning, qualification, and validation activities. We have experience providing CQV support for small and large-scale equipment, integrated manufacturing and packaging lines, cleaning systems, facilities, utilities, and HVAC systems. In addition, we ensure that your computer systems perform accurately, reliably, and consistently, with the ability to discern invalid or altered records and maintain manufacturing compliance. We streamline verification activities with first-time success and optimum schedule adherence.

Commissioning & Qualification

We provide commissioning and qualification (aka verification) services and support to our clients for their equipment, facilities and processes using the latest technologies and proven delivery strategies.

We develop and implement verification solutions that are compliant with industry regulations and drive increased efficiency, cost reduction and schedule compliance for our clients. In addition to our diverse, technical expertise, we utilize cost-effective staffing strategies and software tools to deliver your projects on schedule and on budget to accelerate your speed to market.

We provide verification support throughout all phases of project delivery including planning, design, construction, commissioning, and qualification. We are intimate with current science and risk-based methodologies and practices and implement these solutions to efficiently deliver your assets. Our verification services include the development of verification plans, user requirements, risk assessments, design review reports and C&Q protocols.

Computer System Validation

Computer System Validation (CSV) is the process of documenting that a computer system meets a set of defined system requirements. Validation of computer systems to ensure accuracy, reliability, consistency of intended performance, and the ability to discern invalid or altered records is a critical requirement of compliance in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Our CSV professionals ensure that your automated assets and systems are validated in compliance with industry regulations (e.g., 21 CFR Part 11) and guidance (e.g., GAMP 5).

Validation LifeCycle Support

Per regulatory requirements and guidance, continued process verification is a requirement of validation. The integration of development work, process conformance, and continuing verification provides assurance that the product or process will consistently remain in control throughout an entire product lifecycle. Verista can help with this validation process throughout a product’s lifecycle. We have expertise in cleaning validation, cycle development, sterilization validation, test method validation, SOP development and process validation.

Change Management & Remediation

Change management and remediation processes are critical aspects of a pharmaceutical quality system. It is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to manage the peaks of activity that occur with significant changes related to capital projects, facility and equipment maintenance, process improvements, and general regulatory requirements. Verista’s highly trained teams enable clients to augment internal teams with professionals who understand what it takes to effectively manage change and support remediation efforts.
