Data Integrity and trustworthiness, the fundamental goals of computerized systems compliance and validation (CSV), have recently become a specific focus of severe and numerous enforcement actions by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other global regulatory agencies. In 2013, FDA cited data integrity issues in 26% of its warning letters. Recently, that number jumped to 85%.

Despite the current regulatory landscape being as complex as ever, with new FDA enforcement policies added to an array of applicable laws and regulations, the regulated companies are expected to operate in a manner that is fully compliant and cost-effective, while mitigating risks to patient safety, product quality and data integrity.

This course will focus on the current top five FDA regulatory enforcement trends relevant to computerized systems compliance, validation, and data integrity. It will particularly be useful to those who interface with vendors, FDA and other regulatory agencies.
