Companies in the life science industry are helpful in improving the quality and standard of life. They have applications in health, agriculture, medicine, and the pharmaceutical and food science industries. The life science industry consists of many sub-sectors such as medical devices, biotech/pharma (including agro-biotech), diagnostics and even the healthcare IT (including telemedicine and bioinformatics).
The life science industry is a highly regulated industry. Companies have to comply with a myriad of rules and regulations across all aspects of their business.
In August 2002, the FDA announced the Pharmaceutical CGMPs for the 21st Century Initiative. In that announcement, the FDA explained the Agency’s intent to integrate quality systems and risk management approaches into its existing programs with the goal of encouraging industry to adopt modern and innovative manufacturing technologies. FDA encourages companies in the life science industry to implement modern quality systems and risk management approaches, to meet the requirements of the Agency's current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) regulations (2l CFR parts 210 and 211).
In May of 2017, both the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and the EU In Vitro Diagnostic Regulations (IVDR) entered into force. Although the FDA (USA) and the European Union take a leading role in defining the rules, local governments might sometimes demand slightly different or additional compliance requirements.

What Life Science companies are doing to ensure Audit compliance
For those in the life sciences industry, audits are a normal and consistent part of their world. Regulatory compliance means all eyes must be focused on product safety and quality. We all take protection for granted, but it is standards such as FDA (21 CFR Part 11), GxP, and ISO 9001 that give business, and the consumer a sense of confidence and security. So, what about your life science organization? Is the intention there, but your knowledge in need of fine tuning?
