This new 2-day Seminar on Computer Systems Validation will explore proven techniques for reducing costs associated with implementing, using, & maintaining computer systems in regulated environments. The FDA performs GxP & Part 11 inspections, with an updated Annex 11 regulation, & companies must update their systems and processes to maintain compliance.

Majority of inspection reports such as 483’s and Warning Letters quote issues with 21 CFR Part 11 and data integrity as deviations from GxP regulations. Only way to control and avoid warning letters is by receiving effective Training. Our presenter’s extensive years of experience in the field of third party audit can help your team to better understand & could help reduce your vulnerability of getting 483’s and warning letters, by great amount.

You will get a full understanding of how to perform Risk Assessment as part of the step-by-step risk-based approach to computer system validation. This distinct approach will help minimize project time. You can ensure compliance with QA, FDA, and clients.

FDA India Seminar on CSV in Mumbai

A central element of this course will be an explanation of the GAMP approach to 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, as well as compliance with other international regulations covering ERES. The GAMP Guide provides timely and much needed direction on meeting current regulatory expectations for compliant ERES. You will learn how to use risk management to ensure compliance of regulated ERES.

Our instructor will use examples and real life case studies to better illustrate the application of the techniques for any validation project. Using recent warning letters as examples, this seminar will demonstrate how current Part 11 requirements will be met. With effective implementation of learnings from this seminar, you can avoid warning letters, reduce costs, improve quality, increase compliance with less documentation.

The course not only ensures a full understanding of the regulations and guidelines for raw data and other records but also develop inspection ready documentation. Interactive exercises will be dispersed into and between the presentations.  .
