Course Description

Course Description

Computer system validation has been regulated by FDA for more than 30 years, as it relates to systems used in the manufacturing, testing, and distribution of a product in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, or other FDA-regulated industries. The FDA requirements ensure thorough planning, implementation, integration, testing, and management of computer systems used to collect, analyze and/or report data.

Electronic records and electronic signatures (ER/ES) came into play through guidelines established by FDA in 1997 and disseminated through 21 CFR Part 11. This code describes the basic requirements for validating and documenting ER/ES capability in systems used in an FDA-regulated environment.

In the early 2000s, FDA recognized they could not inspect every computer system at every regulated company and placed the onus on industry to begin assessing all regulated computer systems based on risk. The level of potential risk, should the system fail to operate properly, needed to be the basis for each company’s approach to developing a validation approach and rationale as part of the planning process. System size, complexity, business criticality, GAMP 5 category, and risk rating are the five key components for determining the scope and robustness of testing required to ensure data integrity and product safety.

In December 2018, FDA issued a guidance document on Data Integrity (DI), which has seen an alarming increase in DI issues during inspection of regulated firms. This upward trend continues and is of particular interest during FDA inspection.
