Validation Online has recently set up a facility, where authors of compliance documentation can submit their documents for further sales. Either to individuals or to companies around the globe.
If you are an author or a validation person, or a company producing regulatory required protocols / method statements / SOP’s / process methods / risk assessments or any other of the multitude of documents the industry uses, than please do not let your documents just fade away. There is probably some one in the next town, state or country, just about to produce an exact copy of what you may be throwing out, or have lying dormant.
When we receive documents for resale, we run them through a process that sanitizes them, removing all references to the company of origin, and all traceable elements i.e. personal names, individual company descriptions, trade names, serial numbers, internal document references, etc. The documents are them loaded to our secure servers and can only be viewed after purchase.
Validation Online has two levels of commission in these sales, if we do the sanitation we pass on forty percent of the retail price to the document owner. If the document owner undertakes the sanitation (we show how), we pass on fifty percent commission. There are no up front charges.
A lot of document authors are now finding they can augment their salary or sometimes pension quite considerably this way.
We have been in involved in the creation of regulatory required documentation for eighteen years and have sound estimating knowledge of what most documents cost to author from scratch or from templates. So we set commensurate values on all documents.
Individual simply documents may be valued quite lowly, however complex protocols for specialist equipment maybe priced a several hundred dollars, while a complex validation suite ranging from URS to PQ may be valued a several thousand dollars, even higher sums are available in some cases.
