Product Reviews Write review

Last month, I attended your OOS webinar. The webinar was very educational and excellent. I hope to attend more webinars in future to advance my compliance knowledge. I want to thank you for hosting the webinar. Following the webinar it was very clear my company’s internal OOS procedure was not adequate and requires major revisions.
