TFS HealthScience ensures data integrity and high-quality services are provided to all customers. Quality and Compliance provides well-trained experts to support and guide you through global compliance challenges.
We do this by operating Quality and Compliance as an independent unit reporting directly to the CEO. The team is dedicated and vigilant so customers can rest assured that their clinical trials, projects, and related services are planned, conducted, and reported in compliance with relevant global regulatory requirements, guidance, and organizational Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). To assure the compliance of processes and the integrity of trial data, regular risk-based internal systems audits are carried out using the Corrective Action Preventive Action (CAPA) process, where the team performs a risk assessment and the RCA (Root Cause Analysis) to ensure appropriate and robust CAPA are tracked to completion.
Compliance is a key priority across the TFS business, and the quality delivered in all of our services is of utmost importance. Our customers, healthcare professionals, and patients trust that we consistently deliver the expected high-quality standards.
Our goal is to differentiate ourselves through Clinical Research Excellence, providing excellent and consistent fulfillment of customer expectations and delivering high-quality solutions to the biopharma industry—getting it right the first time, every time.
We are driven by respect for our customers, patients, and each other, always performing with uncompromising integrity. We deliver valuable people-based solutions and quality services in compliance with regulatory requirements and local health authority expectations.
We are dedicated to building high-performing teams of engaged and knowledgeable individuals in which every employee contributes to a culture of learning and continuous improvement through our Quality Objectives and our Quality Management System.
Optimizing processes, managing risks, increasing efficiency, and delivering high-quality services creates value for our customers and generates business opportunities to achieve a competitive advantage in the market.

Our Quality Management System is based on best practice quality systems and includes all ICH GCP as well as global requirements. The system includes a series of controlled documents falling into two categories: quality management system documents for all GXP-related work (Quality Manuals, Policies, SOPs, work instructions, supportive tools, and guidelines) and business operating procedures.
Ability to work with other SOP systems (e.g., other CRO or Sponsors) in cases where the sponsor’s SOPs and forms are to be utilized, the project management principles described in the Project Management Manual are applied using specific sponsor forms and SOPs. The project plan for each study will clearly document the SOPs and forms which are to be used on a project.
Local variations in requirements are captured in documents within the Quality Management System.
