May I use a consultant to assist with the VAWD accreditation process?

Yes. However, you are responsible for the content and implementation of your facility’s policies and procedures and all correspondence with our accreditation staff. Consultants advising on the manufacturing, processing, packing, or holding of drug products shall have sufficient education, training, and experience, or any combination thereof, to advise on the subject for which they are retained. Records shall be maintained stating the name, address, and qualifications and the type of service they provide.
