"Documentation is most important in the regulated world. 'If it is not documented, it is a rumor' is a famous saying when dealing with FDA and other agencies. 'Documentation not available', or 'Documentation not adequate' are most frequently cited deviations in FDA Warning Letters. With a good understanding of the regulations, good science or good engineering it is easily possible to be in compliance with technical requirements. To comply with documentation is not so easy. It is not enough, to have everything documented, it is equally important to have the right documents with the right format. This is where the industry struggles with." (Source: www.labcompliance.com)
