QP Services from CSM

At CSM we have a genuine interest in the well being of others, providing clients with the highest level of standards, ethics, and quality.

We demonstrate our commitment to quality by consistently requiring stringent QA oversight, differentiating CSM from any other clinical supply management company, through our QP services.

One of the advantages to working with us is the access to CSM’s two established sites in the post-Brexit EU. Our in-house QPs make your clinical trial risk free of any Brexit issues. Your QP is responsible for ensuring that the clinical product your study calls for has been manufactured and/or imported in accordance to EU GMP or equivalent satisfactions.

The CSM process focuses on providing the best Qualified Person Services for your clinical trial supply needs.

QP Services for Clinical Trials

A Qualified Person (QP) is primarily responsible for ensuring that the clinical product your study calls for has been manufactured and/or imported in accordance to EU GMP or equivalent satisfactions.

It is due to EU regulations that the manufacture of medicinal products, or importation from a third country, is subject to holding a Manufacturing and Importation Authorization.

The national competent authority of the Member State in which the manufacturer or importer operates, issues these authorizations and the CSM process focuses on upholding these standards while providing the best Qualified Person services for your clinical trial supplies.

This ultimately shortens timelines and reduces costs while improving overall quality.


It is important to note that all Qualified Persons and QP backup personnel are additionally available at CSM’s EU sites.
