Cerba Research is committed to adhering to strict quality assurance guidelines to fulfill your requirement to work under Good Clinical Practices (GCP/GCLP).

A broad range of accreditations and certifications ensure stringent quality management in all aspects of our organization. Consistency and quality are key. We meticulously monitor laboratory results with daily instrument calibrations and an extensive internal quality control program.

All our laboratories (both in-house and partners’) participate in a large range of external proficiency testing schemes such as CAP, CLIA, NEQAS, CDC, NGSP, and various national and commercial programs. Our quality assurance (QA) department is responsible for issuing and reviewing standard operating procedures and working instructions, and for performing internal audits and hosting sponsor audits. 

Client feedback, originating from surveys, audits, or complaints, is centralized through our QA department and is used for continuous process improvement. Each finding or complaint is submitted to an in-depth root cause investigation to define appropriate corrective and/or preventive actions (CAPAs). 

How does GDPR affect your clinical trial?

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), entered into force on May 25, 2018, is the most important change in data privacy regulation over the past 20 years. The GDPR (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy, and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. As the new GDPR guidelines aim to strengthen the protection of personal data not only within the EU borders, but also from outside the EU that is processed within the EU, GDPR is of importance to all companies, regardless of their geographic location.

Our data protection officer oversees our data protection strategy and implementation, ensuring compliance with the GDPR requirements.
