The computer software your firm uses to determine metals analysis is deficient. It has no security measures to prevent unauthorized access of the software, no audit trails, and data can be copied or changed at will, with no documentation of the copying or changes. Your procedures do not require the documentation of calculation or entry errors. There is no documentation to indicate that analysts are trained in the software and its applications.
Also, you or your employees discarded documentation of analytical work performed prior to September 1999. As a consequence, that documentation was not available for review during our inspection. The lost documentation, attributable to flood waters entering your facility, was improperly stored to prevent such an occurrence. In addition, photocopies, electronic data or some other facsimile to the lost documentation were not generated. h the future, you should develop more secure record storage facilities and procedures to prevent record loss due to natural disasters or other unforeseen circumstances.
