~Course Description:

Validation of computer systems is a legal requirement within the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries.  Given the current regulatory and industry focus on electronic data integrity, adequate control over electronic data systems is coming under more scrutiny.  Quality personnel are often tasked with auditing and/or reviewing computer systems validation packages, whether for internal business groups or outsourced businesses that collect or generate regulated data on behalf of the sponsor firm.  Technical management, principal investigators, study directors, and similar personnel can also be tasked with reviewing the adequacy of a system’s validation status prior to approving its use on a regulated activity, but what are the critical items to look for?
The purpose of this training is to present techniques and strategies for auditing computer systems validation documentation for compliance to applicable global regulations, plus internal policies and SOPs.   Current issues including cloud systems and data integrity will be discussed.

Learning objectives include:

A review of regulatory requirements for computer systems validation
Understanding the basic components of a computer systems validation package
Identify high-risk areas within a computer systems validation project
Identify where to look in documentation for evidence of specific testing of critical system functions

Learn how to audit change control and periodic review documentation to help assure the maintenance of the validated state
Strategies for reporting and mitigating issues identified
Common mistakes and pitfalls to avoid when auditing your systems

Who Should Attend
This course will be of benefit to anyone involved the validation, use, and maintenance of regulated computer systems within GxP environments.  This course will be highly-relevant to those in quality assurance, validation, IT, and other job functions responsible for auditing or reviewing the validation, use, and maintenance of computer systems and associated data.
