Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Centro Ricerche Cliniche di Verona (CRC), an early phase CRO, has become the first organization to be accredited under a new scheme of quality certification conducted by the European CROs Federation (EUCROF).
“The system provides sponsors and study volunteers assurance that certified facilities are independently audited and have reached the highest standards of quality,” said Stefano Milleri M.D., medical director of CRC.
“The Early Phase Unit Quality Mark accreditation scheme reflects EUCROF’s commitment to continuous improvement in provision of clinical research services by our members,” said Dr. Susanne Gerbl-Rieger, a member of the EUCROF Early Phase Working Group. “The audit process is independently conducted and examines 12 areas of operations which, for example, affect patient safety, regulatory compliance and organizational quality.”
