2023 State of Validation Survey: Share Your Voice

23 May 2023

Navigating the evolving regulatory landscape requires an informed, efficient, and effective validation program. To help companies achieve this, we sponsor an annual, comprehensive industry survey. The survey gathers unique validation data from global companies across all industries and helps to establish benchmarks to empower companies to enhance their validation programs. 


The State of Validation is an annual report, powered by Kneat Solutions, comprising primary research conducted with validation professionals worldwide. The State of Validation survey creates an annual dataset which is analyzed and published in the report together with expert, actionable insights, which track the progression of the validation industry, enabling organizations and individuals to inform their own programs and initiatives, benchmark, adapt, and grow. 

Take part in the 2023 State of Validation survey, receive a Starbucks® gift card, and enter a prize draw. You’ll also get exclusive early access to the published report—where you’ll discover the trends highly regulated companies should focus on in 2023 and see what has changed since 2022.
