Quality Assurance for your Sites and for your Clinical Trial Site Staff

GCSA was formed through the coming together of IAOCR, a leading International Accrediting Organization for the clinical research industry, and Develop Consulting, the leading Process Improvement Organization in the UK Health Sector. This partnership was developed in response to Industry demand to bring about the adoption of consistent global standards of excellence across all sites (public and private) conducting clinical trials. 

The GCSA assessment & certification is awarded at both the site and workforce level and assures an excellent patient and sponsor experience every time.   The IAOCR accreditation and award of Internationally Qualified Professional Status is awarded at the individual level, providing assurance that the employees working at a clinical trial site are independently verified as being competent in their role.

GCSA provides a transparent system that facilitates best practice synergistic working between clinical research sites, sponsors and CROs, to provide a first-class service to all patients and bring innovative new treatments to market more quickly and safely.  GCSA provides confidence to sponsors and patients in selecting where to place their trials, knowing that they are in safe hands.
