Best Practices in Preparation for an FDA Computer System Validation Audit
January 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$199
Effective and compliant computer system validation is critical to any pharmaceutical or FDA-regulated organization. Following best practices for developing a validation program that includes planning, execution and maintenance components will ensure that these efforts will meet all regulatory agency requirements and expectations. Preparedness will improve your relationship with the agency and ensure a more cooperative and successful audit experience.
FDA requires that all computer systems used to produce, manage and report on GxP (GMP, GLC, GCP) related products be validated and maintained in accordance with specific rules. In this FDA Compliance Training, you’ll learn all about how to prepare your system validation documentation for an FDA audit of your company’s computer systems.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
It is not enough just to validate a computer system and defend your approach to regulatory agencies. You will also need to ensure that the data and information collected, analyzed and reported using the system can be defended effectively, as well. In this course, you will learn how to apply industry best practices to ensure that you and your system users and other stakeholders are fully prepared to defend your systems, data and information to regulatory agencies. At the same time, you will learn how to do this in the most cost-effective manner.
