Data integrity is crucial for pharmaceutical companies and other strongly regulated industries like life sciences, biotechnology and food.

Why is data integrity important?

Regulatory agencies and companies need accurate and reliable data to ensure the safety, efficacy and quality of products. This is especially important for medicines because the safety and health of patients must be guaranteed.

Data integrity is also crucial for guaranteeing trust between the industry and regulatory agencies. In the event of data integrity problems, regulatory agencies cannot ensure the quality of products. Moreover, regulatory agencies cannot constantly audit companies to inspect every part of the production process. Agencies must be able to trust an organisation to do the right thing and to guarantee the quality of products and processes. In short, data must be complete, consistent and accurate.
