Quality Assurance (QA): The regulatory requirement set forth in 40 CFR Part 160 (the FIFRA Good Laboratory Practice Standards) that mandates an internal monitoring program. The IR-4 QA program monitors study conduct, record keeping, reporting and record retention processes and reports to testing facility management and study directors any observations/findings that do not meet the required GLP standards. Those reported findings with recommended corrective actions are then to be responded to and the appropriate corrections documented by study conduct/study management personnel. The IR-4 QA page presents links to our online reporting system (eQA/eDOCs), QA monitoring checklists, FAQ and other materials that support the IR-4 QA program.
