On-line Audio Seminar 202

Cost Effective Software and Computer System Validation

Take Advantage of New Recommendations from FDA, EU Annex 11 and GAMP® 5


Order Button

Software and computer systems are getting more and more complex. Systems offer more functions than ever at lower costs. However, increasing number of used functions also means more validation effort. As a consequence frequently validation costs surpass costs for computer hardware and software. Both industry task forces such as GAMP®, standard committees such as USP and ASTM, and regulatory agencies such as the FDA  and EMEA recognize this and promote new cost effective ways for validation. However the industry in unsure how the new guidelines can be implemented in the most cost effective way.

Key questions related to cost savings for computer validation are :

  • What are the key points of GAMP®5 and Annex 11 for cost savings?
  • What  is FDA's approach?
  • What does ASTM 2500 recommend?
  • Which systems don't need to be validated at all?
  • How can I save cost during testing:?
  • How can software suppliers help to save validation costs?
  • Can automated test tools really reduce costs or do I also have to validate them?
  •  I have five identical systems, do I have to validate them all?
  • My vendor provides validation certificates, do I have to do anything in addition?
  • How much documentation do I need?
  • Do we need signatures on each validation sheet?
  • How does risk based validation help?
  • Is this all useful for clinical studies?

How does the this audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Problems with the traditional inefficient way of computer system validation
  • Savings from recent new FDA, EMEA, ASTM 2500, USP 1058 and GAMP® 5 documents
  • Savings through risk based validation
  • Leveraging vendor validation, documentation and services
  • Savings through scalable validation
  • Savings through standardization from design, and development to testing and documentation
  • Avoiding to duplicate efforts
  • Leveraging multiple installations
  • Leveraging validation at other sites
  • Efficient use of forms and templates with examples

And for easy and instant implementation:
