About Us

What We Do

CSV Compliance is the global leader in spreadsheet and database validation services for the Life Sciences and regulated industries. We offer a total service for spreadsheet and database compliance. We apply a proven three stage process, which addresses the compliance issues relating to the use and control of spreadsheets and databases.

1. Firstly we listen to your needs and understand your regulatory drivers. We determine how our proven validation and compliance approach can be adapted to fit within your organisation and within your existing quality system.

2. Secondly we compile a list of your spreadsheets and databses and capture their fundamental purpose, criticality, and an overview of their functionality. We use this information to determine whether they need to be validated and maintained in a secure and regulated environment.

3. Finally, and uniquely from CSV Compliance, we offer a complete turnkey solution for spreadsheet and database compliance which includes software options (and implementation services) and end user spreadsheet and database development and validation services.

We work with you to provide validated spreadsheets and databases within a secure environment that will meet your regulatory needs.

CSV Compliance was previously a part of ABB Consulting. We are a leading supplier of spreadsheet and database consultancy and execution services to the global life sciences industry. We are industry recognised experts within computer systems validation and our team comprises experienced consultants who specialise in spreadsheet and database validation.

“ Spreadsheets were identified as a compliance concern in all of our manufacturing sites worldwide. In total we estimated that there were 100 spreadsheets that we needed to deal with. They provided us with a complete solution to spreadsheet compliance. The product proved straightforward to install worldwide, despite having a variety of regional variations in Excel, language, and regional settings.”

"I just got out of an audit where the auditor asked to see the validation for DaCS. I think just seeing the volume of paper answered 80% of their questions, and the very few ones that followed were easily answered. The auditors are very impressed by the content and structure. I almost enjoy being called into an audit regarding the spreadsheet now!"
