This training program will discuss the new blockchain innovations particularly as they can be used to connect and protect the regulated supply chain. The focus will be on how this can enhance cMGP compliance while it strengthens a company’s critical supply chain.
This webinar will explore the growing use of blockchain in supply chain control. Basically, blockchain is a time-stamped series of records of data that is managed by a distributed, networked cluster of computers under multiple ownership. Under blockchain, individual blocks of data is secured and bound/ “chained” to each other under cryptographic principles. First used for Bitcoin, it has since expanded into mainstream business use, with it’s most immediate use to date in supply chain management. Major names in the industry, such as IBM, offer the technology.
With no central authority in the blockchain network, it basically presents a shared ledger. Data is open for anyone to see – transparent. It makes everyone involved is accountable for their actions, which are limited, recorded, and available for review and/or further action.
Why You Should Attend:
Blockchain implementation require planning, verification, testing, validation, traceability, configuration management, conformance to software V&V including 21 CFR Part 11 – electronic records and electronic signatures, and other aspects of good engineering. These assure they meet existing CGMP regulations.
The cGMPs and FDA requires the integration of life cycle and risk management activities into the planning, implementation, and maintenance of a blockchain facilitated supply chain.
