October 2021 – CROss Alliance QA Unit attended the XXIX GIQAR meeting, sponsoring the event and moderating one of the GCP sessions.

The attendees discussed the impact of Covid-19 pandemic on QA activities, with a special focus on how remote audits have been conducted and their effectiveness compared to on-site activities.

The common opinion of Sponsors sustained remote audits as a possible alternative that guaranteed efficiency during last-year emergency. On-site Inspections will remain the best practice with remote inspections limited to specific and contingent situations.

The constructive debates among diverse and participative attendees make GIQAR a valuable event that Cross is pleased to attend annually.
