What we do
Soho Links connects the knowledge and expertise of specialist advisers with you
– to meet the evolving standards and latest developments.
We provide technical and regulatory expertise to organisations working with substances of human origin (SoHO) to achieve and maintain the regulatory requirements and modern standards. If your projects involve the application of regulations, standards or guidance for human tissues and cells, or for assisted reproductive technologies, then we can assist you.
Our services include reviews of Quality Management Systems, compliance assessments, project management by a team of advisers and the achitecture of IT systems. We also provide advice on specialist processes, risk management models, registration of establishments at European Competent Authorities and the state of play on novel therapeutic products. For National Competent Authorities we can provide advice on the licensing and inspection processes, systems for annual reporting and the training of specialist inspectors.
These may benefit your own healthcare organisation and the standards of service to patients, we look forward to hearing from you.
