bioskin® is proud to be a member of the Federal Association of Contract Research Organizations (Bundesverband Medizinischer Auftragsinstitute, BVMA) since 2011. The BVMA was founded in 1991 to represent CROs based in Germany or German speaking countries and currently has 32 member companies operating in the field of national and international clinical research.
What makes membership in the BVMA special?
A CRO must meet the high quality prerequisites set by the BVMA to be a member. In order to ensure that these quality standards are met and maintained, each member CRO must undergo an independent system audit carried out by a BVMA appointed external organization before acceptance and again every three years.
During this audit all of bioskin’s systems, procedures, practices and documentation were assessed to ensure compliance with Good Clinical Practice (ICH GCP), relevant national and international requirements and standards, and generally accepted good practices.
