This webinar is intended for those working in the FDA-regulated industries, including pharmaceutical, medical device, biological and tobacco. Functions that are applicable include research and development, clinical sample manufacturing, packaging, labeling and distribution, clinical testing and management, adverse events management and post-marketing surveillance.
You should attend this webinar if you are responsible for planning, executing or managing the implementation of any computer system governed by FDA regulations, or if you are developing, configuring, maintaining or supporting such a system.
We will discuss the importance of applying industry best practices when auditing a vendor of hardware, software, or other technology, or a provider of technology services, such as system implementation, system configuration, system development, system integration or similar activity.
Computerized systems that are used in FDA-regulated environments (i.e., the system “touches” an FDA-regulated product, or a raw material or packaging component used in conjunction with the product during the manufacturing, testing or tracking processes). Such a system must be validated in accordance with FDA guidelines for computerized systems and documented accordingly.
It is important to be able to identify computer systems used when performing FDA-regulated activities. When a vendor is involved, whether in terms of provisioning hardware and/or software, implementing the system or maintaining it, this must be done in compliance with FDA requirements. A solid computer system validation strategy, along with an understanding of industry best practices, will lead your company to ensure that vendors are held accountable for delivery of systems and services that will support your efforts to validate computer systems and maintain them in a validated state.
This webinar will also provide guidance on the importance of factoring risk into all FDA-regulated activities, and will help you assess the risk of any computer products purchased from third-party vendors. You will also learn how to develop a standard audit process, using templates and checklists, to ease the burden of this activity. Documentation is critical to proving that a system does what it purports to do, and that a company has thoroughly scrutinized and effectively leveraged any third-party vendor that is involved in these efforts.
Why Should You Attend
Effective and compliant computer system development, testing and validation are critical to any pharmaceutical or FDA-regulated organization. You should attend this seminar if you are responsible for planning, executing or managing a computer system that is governed by FDA regulations. A full understanding of how to assess the vendor’s practices is essential to ensuring compliance, and is a first step in the validation of a computer system regulated by FDA.
It is important to remember that in addition to validating a computer system subject to FDA compliance, the system must be maintained in a validated state throughout its lifecycle, until the system is retired or otherwise no longer used. This webinar will describe the policies, procedures, training and other underlying support elements that are needed to ensure ongoing maintenance of a system in a validated state. All of these things are necessary to ensure data integrity and data governance over the data lifecycle.
In addition, FDA has heavily focused its resources on inspection targeting Data Integrity (DI). During the past ten years, the percentage of Form 483 citations and Warning Letters with issues related to DI has increased dramatically, and continues to do so through 2019. We will provide the requirements related to DI, examples of FDA findings, and will cover the industry best practices that will help you mitigate this potential risk.
