The CQA Company is the backbone of the Acceler8 Clinical Research. In common with all Acceler8 divisions, its corporate structure facilitates optimum commercial efficiency in helping bring clients’ products to market.

Its Quality Assurance function originally operated solely as an internal resource for Acceler8 sister companies.

This facility maintains the Group’s quality management system, audits internal operations and external suppliers, manages documentation, ensures compliance and provides internal QA training.

The service has been accessible externally for clients with time and budget pressures since 2004.
