How Does Your Validation Program Measure Up?

29 Jun 2022

Launching in 2022, the State of Validation is an annual report, powered by Kneat Solutions, comprising primary research conducted with validation professionals. It aims to create an annual dataset to track the progression of the validation industry, enabling organizations and individuals to benchmark and grow.


Running a best-practice validation program requires a skilled team, efficient value-added processes, regulatory understanding, and a commitment to quality at all levels of an organization. To help companies achieve this, we are sponsoring a comprehensive industry survey. The survey will gather unique validation data from companies across quality regulated industries and will help to establish benchmarks to aid them in improving their validation programs. In this article we give a short overview of the State of Validation project and answer the following five questions:
