Quality Assurance Program
ILS is committed to providing the highest quality data to our clients. Quality Control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) are implemented at each level of data generation and supervisory review. The technical staff members are directly responsible for the quality of their product. QC is implemented through self, supervisory, and peer review systems. Quality is further assured through a Quality Assurance Unit (QAU) which is organizationally independent of the project staff and reports directly to ILS corporate management. As requested, ILS will conduct studies and maintain all laboratory records in accordance with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) Good Laboratory Practice regulations.
Health & Safety Program
It is the policy of ILS to provide a safe work environment for its employees by implementing a comprehensive Health and Safety (H&S) Program with dedicated staff. The H&S Program complies with Federal, State, and local laws and accepted standard practices. Emphasis is placed on compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act of North Carolina and Occupational Safety and Health Standards, Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1910. ILS is also certified by the Office of Laboratory and Animal Welfare No. A3490-01 and has adequate facilities and equipment to provide technical and scientific support within the current H&S Program.
