Remediation

Consent Decree? Warning Letter? Findings? – Recovery Support

As industry regulations continue to increase, it is not uncommon for an organisation to find themselves on the wrong side of an audit outcome with findings and observations to be addressed.

Remediation of a quality system is a complex and time-consuming task.

To achieve remediation an organisation may need to ask themselves some very tough questions:

  • Is our risk management process operational and fit for purpose?
  • Do we operate in silos or are we appropriately integrated?
  • Are we a data driven organisation?
  • Do we have the required data to support legacy products?

Very often audit findings are the first step to uncovering the systemic root causes that led to the non-compliance. Framing a remediation programme and drawing clear lines of scope is not an easy task. Remediation is a cross functional, multi-departmental responsibility that requires leadership support from the organisation.
