Acquisition Integration

Acquisition Integration FAQ's

This is often the central concern, as both companies likely have established quality systems with their own procedures and documentation. Assessing differences and developing a harmonization plan with clear timelines and responsibilities are essential steps.

Integrating a new team into existing quality processes requires comprehensive training. Familiarizing them with your company’s quality system documentation is crucial to ensure consistent practices. The harmonization plan optimizes resource allocation, minimizes disruption and defines the ongoing support to foster smooth adaptation and avoid compliance issues.

A phased approach to the quality system integration is important. A priority for implementation in the first phase is the integration of the document system.
