On-line Audio Seminar 322

Managing Electronic Raw Data in Regulated Environments

Definition, generation, evaluation and archiving for FDA, ICH, PIC/S and EU compliance

Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button

All regulations have strict requirements for electronic raw data and other e-records. The objective is to ensure accuracy, integrity, authenticity, security and availability of records during the entire life from generation to deletion. While the intent is the same for all regulations only FDA's 21 CFR Part 11 and the EU equivalent Annex 11 have well defined requirements but still leave a lot of room for interpretations. So the industry is more unsure than ever on what to do with the result of many FDA Warning Letters and other inspectional observations related to inadequate handling of electronic records..

Key Questions are:

  • What are FDA requirements and inspection practices for raw data in GLP/GCP/GMP?
  • What exactly are raw data: original electronic data, first human readable data, computer print-outs?
  • Which data should be retained and archived?
  • Can I delete the electronic records after I have printed and signed the electronic records?
  • For how long should raw data be retained?
  • In which form should raw data be retained?
  • How can I demonstrate integrity of electronic raw data?
  • How important is risk assessment for my decision?
  • We move to a new computer systems that can not handle old data - What to do?
  • I transcribe data from paper into an data base. Can I scrap the paper?
  • 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 the raw data and if so for how long?

How does the this audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. Using FDA's Part 11 as a model, 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 of the principles and strategies for other regulations.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and EU requirements for raw data and meta data
  • FDA Inspection and enforcement practices
  • Recommendations from industry task forces
  • Definition of raw data: original records , complete records
  • Definition of 'critical' raw data and other records
  • How to ensure and demonstrate integrity of raw data
  • Managing combined electronic and paper records (hybrid systems)
  • Managing transfer of raw data from displays, e.g., balances, to computers
  • 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 and system retirement
  • Developing a procedure for consistent raw data management
  • Examples from laboratories, offices and manufacturing
