Quality Compliance

Ora’s Quality Compliance team has five full-time experts dedicated to clinical trial quality assurance.

Why is quality assurance important?

You need to know that your studies are being conducted to the highest standards. This is possible only through finely tuned Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), laid out in accordance with current Good Clinical Practices (cGCPs), the FDA, and International Council for Harmonization (ICH) guidance requirements.

Ora’s Quality team is brought in on the ground floor to build a solid relationship with our clients, sites, and vendors.
