Upon completion of this session, attendees will have an understanding of
FDA compliance and enforcement as it relates to computer system
validation. They will understand how to develop the most robust computer
system validation compliance program, focusing on the critical areas of
interest to FDA.
The attendees will have a good grasp of how to
identify potential weaknesses and findings, as well as how to make
recommendations for addressing and remediating them through risk
In particular, we will focus on best practices for
validating computer systems regulated by FDA and meeting compliance with
electronic records and electronic signatures (21 CFR Part 11). We will
also provide current FDA trends, including a focus on data integrity
issues in industry, which will be illustrated through industry examples.
webinar will cover what you need to do to prepare for an FDA audit, and
also the importance and steps required to be certain you have audited
all vendors of regulated systems appropriately.
Why you should attend
and compliant computer system validation is critical to any
FDA-regulated organization. FDA has set forth very specific requirements
for meeting compliance, and a very prescriptive set of enforcement
actions to protect patient and/or consumer safety. This course will
enable you to best anticipate and prepare for FDA scrutiny, understand
your role during inspections and audits, and gain insight to the level
of enforcement associated with various findings, consent decrees and
warning letters. Examples from industry will be used as case studies to
It is vital for regulated companies to maintain
a pulse on the regulatory environment in order to fortify system
validation efforts, as necessary, to meet FDA expectations. It is the
best practice to have a robust computer system validation, continue
executing against it consistently, and documenting it thoroughly. By
maintaining a strong and consistent computer system validation program,
companies can further build trust with FDA and the consumers who rely on
such oversight for protection.
