Compliance in laboratory settings has been a topic for the FDA and other regulators for decades. With the increased focus on data integrity and continued focus on laboratory investigations, it is critical more than ever to ensure you have designed your laboratory operations system to meet the compliance needs of your business. In this presentation, I will define compliance, provide a translation of regulations and guidance into user requirements and then using those user requirements to show how one can design a laboratory system. Finally, I will provide a
roadmap for implementation whether an existing laboratory or a new laboratory.
