You should attend this seminar if you are responsible for planning, executing or managing the validation of laboratory computer systems governed by FDA regulations.
Effective and compliant computer system validation is critical to any FDA-regulated organization. During the past 30 years, best practices have been developed that, if followed, can ensure laboratory computer systems are validated efficiently and in compliance with FDA regulations.
There is an enormous body of documentation and information available on computer system validation, which can be overwhelming. This course will provide a condensed overview of the practices that deliver the best results by directing the attendees to the most critical and cost-effective of methods, techniques and tools available.
Areas Covered in the Session :
- Gain an understanding of laboratory system computer validation planning, execution and management concepts
- Discuss the best practices for laboratory computer system validation that will ensure compliant results while minimizing costs
- Identify the GAMP 5 category for the system to understand how best to approach validation, particularly testing
- Discuss the key documentation associated with validating laboratory systems and maintaining them in a validated state, while minimizing costs
- Learn how to leverage these practices across all systems by creating a standardized program for FDA-regulated systems
- Understand the training that must be provided to business and IT staff involved in the validation process
- Discuss the business process re-engineering opportunities that might be leveraged as a system is implemented, particularly if it is more advanced than the legacy system in terms of technology and functionality
- Learn the advantage of incorporating a formal organizational change management system into the validation effort to ensure that users fully embrace the new technology and functionality
