    Trained professionals provide services including validation planning, specification development, risk assessments, project management, execution of technical studies, and equipment troubleshooting while assuring safe, efficient, and compliant C&Q services.

  • Computer System Validation

    Design Group's multi-disciplined services allow for a partnership between the Regulatory Compliance, Control System Integration, and Enterprise Technology Consulting Practices to build a robust computer and software validation program for systems at all levels of the ISA 95 pyramid. Support can range from program development to development of clear and robust specifications, to the integration of key elements and ERES compliance, to the application of GAMP 5-based risk management tools, and the generation and execution of custom validation protocols.

  • Process & Cleaning Validation

    Design Group provides process validation strategies demonstrating technical understanding of process development and manufacturing methods. These strategies effectively deliver process validation programs that incorporate scientific rationale and justification to align with regulatory guidance and industry standards.

    We deliver cleaning validation services to incorporate a technological understanding of clean-in-place processes, chemical compatibility studies, cross contamination risk mitigation, sampling requirements and techniques, analytical method development and validation, and technical reporting to support cleaning validation activities.
