MediaLab's Inspection Proof module helps laboratories be inspection-ready all the time. By uploading inspection checklists and providing responses in the web-based portal, there is no paper to maintain or documents to keep up. MediaLab's team of experts offers years of inspection experience. We've built the features your laboratory needs for inspections to run smoother and more efficiently.
Be Audit Ready All the Time
With InspectionProof, say goodbye to binders stuffed with checklists, standards, and out-of-date policies. InspectionProof digitizes your standards and checklists and stores your responses and evidence in the cloud. Upload attachments, link to policies and procedures in Document Control or your own document management system, and more.
Upload your inspection checklists, customized for your lab, directly into InspectionProof. Your checklists are automatically parsed into inspection events in InspectionProof and tied to key due dates.
Respond to checklist items with relevant information to help during an inspection.
Text responses - A rich text editor, with formatting, tables, bulleted lists, images, and spell check, lets you enter responses of any length.
Links to Document Control - Connect checklist items with policies, procedures, forms, and job aids in MediaLab's Document Control system.
Uploaded files - Upload Word, PDF, PowerPoint, Excel, Visio, and image files to show compliance with checklist requirements. View files online without needing downloading them.
Create inspection events for different locations or satellite laboratories, all in a single system. Each unit / site can establish its own inspections, work from its own checklists, and borrow documentation and responses as needed.

Compatible with CAP, ASHI, and Other Accreditation Agencies
Import checklists from a wide variety of accrediting organizations, including CAP and ASHI. InspectionProof accepts Excel and CSV checklists from almost all laboratory accrediting organizations.
MediaLab is an approved participant in CAP's Accreditation Checklist Distribution Program. If your laboratory is CAP-accredited, you can upload your lab's custom checklists into InspectionProof for on-site and self inspections. As checklist versions are updated, you'll get a report of all changes relevant to your customized checklists.
"Our inspection went very smoothly. We set up 4 inspectors with desktop computers and access to MediaLab, and I think they handled 90% of the inspection that way. When I asked afterwards they said it was very smooth and easy to do once they got the hang of it. Thanks for all your help through our many years with MediaLab."

Gather Inspection Responses From the Whole Team

InspectionProof allows you to assign tasks (individual standards or entire inspection events) to department heads, supervisors, QA, and other key team members. Preliminary responses go through approval workflows to get management approval before they're finalized. Bring in your responses from previous inspections to make getting started on the next year's faster and easier. Use templates to standardize your organization's responses across multiple facilities.
Preparing for an inspection involves all areas of the laboratory. Delegate tasks and get input from department heads, supervisors, lead techs, and other employees.
Get help from the people who know your lab best. Assign whole checklists and individual checklist tasks to department heads, supervisors, lead techs, and others. Review their input to make sure that it meets your standards.
Collect input from your bench techs or any other user as you're completing checklist responses. E-mail users from within InspectionProof; their replies are automatically documented.

On-Site Inspections and Self Inspections
Inspection Proof can be used for both self-inspections and on-site inspections. Guide inspectors through the checklists and responses, show attachments and links, and prepare your team for a successful inspection.
You'll know that you're ready for an inspection long before inspectors arrive. When they do, InspectionProof helps you locate the documentation that you'll need to show. No fumbling, no misplaced manuals.
Prepare for a self inspection just like you would for an on-site inspection. Conduct your self inspection within the designated window, marking any deficiencies. Document your response to your deficiencies.
InspectionProof provides audit history, notes, and documentation all in one place. Stop tracking down paperwork and busy people. Set roles and permissions to allow team members access to the audit event. Lock previous events, or make them viewable to certain groups. Historical information is available for quick reference any time.
