Course Description

Course Description

Effective and compliant computer system validation is critical to any pharmaceutical or FDA-regulated organization. During the past 30 years, best practices that have been developed will ensure that validation activities are cost-effective while meeting all aspects of FDA compliance.

While these practices have been employed, companies are being forced to do more work with fewer resources, leading to errors noted in citations, particularly in Warning Letters in the past 10 years. This has resulted in consequences including heavy fines and operational shut-downs.

Both FDA and industry recognize the need to review current practices to ensure they meet the standards for creating data with integrity and maintaining it as such throughout the entire life cycle. 

In this CPE webinar, you will learn about these FDA trends in compliance and enforcement, as they relate to data integrity, and how to improve your practices to meet compliance requirements.

In this CPE webinar on information technology, we will focus on the importance of ensuring that the validation of an FDA-regulated computer system will meet compliance guidelines. This includes the development of a company philosophy and approach and incorporating it into an overall computer system validation program and plans for individual systems that are regulated by FDA. It also requires a recognition that Data Integrity issues continue to be a strong area of focus by the FDA during an inspection, and there are many examples and best practices that will be covered in this webinar to address them.

Data governance will also be explored in terms of developing a framework for an organization. The key facets of the framework will be highlighted and examples provided to demonstrate the benefits of governing data effectively. When data is readily available and easy to access, users can make decisions more expeditiously and appropriately. The data structure must be considered to build consistency in the use of terminology and key phrases. This leads to improved search capability.

You’ll learn best industry practices for organizing a data governance program in this CPE course.

As FDA continues to evolve and change due to the many factors that influence the regulatory environment, companies must be able to adapt. New technologies will continue to emerge that will change the way companies do business. While many of these are intended to streamline operations, reducing time and resources, some unintentionally result in added layers of oversight that encumber a computer system validation program and require more time and resources, making the technology unattractive from a cost-benefit perspective.
