GxP Compliance


Companies in the life sciences must be able to meet a wide range of requirements. Apart from customer needs, these include laws, standards and directives, compliance with which can be very closely monitored and whose fulfilment is a condition for market entry in the first place. These include requirements for the implementation and operation of computerised systems (FDA 21 CFR Part 11, EU GMP Annex 11 and Annex 15). At the present time, topics such as data integrity and protection from counterfeit medicinal products now also have a key role to play.

Today, all activities for the implementation and fulfilment of regulatory requirements are referred to in general as “compliance”. In a software context, the related concept is therefore “GxP compliance”. For companies working in the pharmaceuticals and medical technology industries, Computerized System Validation (CSV, software validation) forms an integral part of GxP compliance.


Our firm has been offering consulting services in the life sciences and working in the field of GxP compliance since 1996. Our first clients were SAP customers from the pharmaceuticals industry, who needed to validate their systems due to stringent regulatory requirements. Validation accordingly became one of our key consulting topics, and so we developed a process-oriented and risk-based DHC validation method. We orient ourselves naturally here on the lifecycle model (V-Model) according to the latest version of GAMP, the relevant ISO standards (e.g. ISO 13485) and the regulatory requirements of the FDA (e.g. 21 CFR Part 11) and European regulators (e.g. EU GMP Annex 11).

We offer you a full and comprehensive set of services focused on GxP compliance. These services also include the standardisation and harmonisation of validation and qualification measures, so as to meet the widest possible range of regulatory requirements. These services aim to simplify your IT QM, thereby saving you both time and money.

Our specialised know-how related to validation and GxP compliance is further complemented by our industry experience as well as our expertise in process and project management.


Mohammad Anwar Hossain, Project Manager, SAP project ‘UTTORON’, Deputy General Manager, IT, Incepta Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Dhaka

“DHC made the most effective job in our project. Many of their activities not only assured the goal of a prospective validation of SAP ERP ECC 6.0, but also reduced the project risk. Due to the structured approach with SAP processes and business scenarios and defining the business requirements in URS documents, we were pretty sure, that the new ERP system will cover the daily business of Incepta.”
