GAMP® Data Integrity 21 CFR Part 11 Course Description

The importance and amount of data being generated to ensure product quality and patient safety continues to grow and proper controls around that data continue to be questioned. Regulatory agencies across the world are noticing a significant increase in data integrity issues. As a result, they are being forced to re-evaluate industry guidance and their enforcement strategies. Regulatory concerns and warning letters have extended to all areas of the pharmaceutical business, including manufacturing, development, clinical, pharmacovigilance and other areas of the product lifecycle. This course will cover data integrity, electronic records and signatures, and the compliant operation of GxP Computerized Systems to provide the tools and techniques to implement proper controls for data to ensure the integrity and validity of the information throughout the data lifecycle.
