Quality and Compliance

SCCR boasts a strong foundational commitment to quality, demonstrated both at the leadership and the organizational levels. Implementing a Quality by Design strategy, we place heavy emphasis on innovative, proactive processes and continuous evaluation for improvement.

At SCCR, we define quality as not only freedom from errors, but as meeting and exceeding expectations in all critical aspects of a clinical research project. This includes:

  • Ensuring the safety and well-being of our participants.
  • Streamlined and efficient operations based on our portfolio of Standard Operating Procedures.
  • Maintaining compliance with regulatory requirements and international guidelines.



Our Quality Management System


Based on the most current Good Clinical Practice expectations, our quality system is centered on four strategic priorities: risk management, control/ assurance, evidence-based operations, and quality improvement.

These strategic priorities are implemented in a tailored, project-specific risk-based approach. In which, all risks are initially identified through structured and documented processes during project intake and start-up, and continually modified as necessary.
