On-line Audio Seminar 209

Raw Data in FDA Regulated Environments

FDA/EU compliant recording, maintenance and archiving


Order Button

No or incomplete recording and archiving of raw data are amongst the most frequently cited deviations in recent warning letters. '"Electronic raw data not saved", "Audit trails failed to provide the reason for changing the raw data", "Firm needs to have a system for accountability for raw data", and "Insufficient recording of raw data", are just a few examples. And this despite of the fact and 'Raw Data" are well defined in FDA and international regulations and most companies have procedures.

Key Questions related to raw data are:

  • What are FDA requirements and inspection practices for raw data in GLP/GCP/GMP?
  • What exactly are computer generated raw data: original electronic data, first human readable data, computer print-outs?
  • Which data should be retained and archived?
  • What should we care about when we change data: on paper, in electronic form?
  • We transcribe original observations from paper to a computer data base. Can we delete the original paper records?
  • In which form should raw data be retained: paper, standard electronic files, proprietary electronic formats?
  • Can I delete the electronic records after I have printed and signed the electronic records?
  • For how long should raw data be retained?
  • How can I demonstrate integrity of raw data?
  • How important is risk assessment for my decisions?
  • We move to a new computer systems that can not handle old data - What to do?
  • I scan paper print-outs and store PDF files in a data base - can I delete the paper records?
  • Should I be able to reprocess electronic raw data and if so for how long

How does the 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 and examples. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, worksheets, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

  • The importance of risk assessment for the management of raw data
  • Electronic record maintenance during archiving period
  • Software to manage and archive raw data and other electronic records
  • Data migration to new systems
  • Developing a procedure for consistent raw data management
  • Examples from laboratories, offices and manufacturing
