Before I moved to our QA group, there was an initiative to have the review of intermediate-level records done by the manufacturing/QC supervisors. (Meaning, buffers, stock solutions, up to vialed reagent records would be reviewed by the groups who perform the work and know the process and documents best.) The records would come to QA just to be filed in the document vault. The QA group would maintain review and release of the FINAL records (so after we put all of the parts together and want to release the assembled kit lot containing all reagents) in order to maintain some separation of the group who did the work and final review/release of product. Thoughts? Regulations or standards we'd be violating? I wasn't sure which board to post this to so please let me know if it should be somewhere else!
