Understanding the New FDA Guidance: Data Integrity and Compliance with cGMP

With examples and procedures for effective implementation

Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button

In recent years, FDA has increasingly observed CGMP violations involving data integrity lapses during CGMP inspections. These data integrity-related CGMP violations have led to numerous regulatory actions, including warning letters, import alerts, and consent decrees. The new draft guidance answers 18 questions related to data integrity for cGMP compliance. The guidance also. clarifies the following terms as they relate to CGMP records: data integrity, metadata, audit trail, "static" and "dynamic" record formats, backup, and "systems” in “computer or related systems”. Based on the presenter's experience from previous seminars more questions are expected:

Key Questions are:

  • Are there examples for computer systems as defined in the guidance?
  • Can you recommend an SOP for handling dynamic records as defined by FDA
  • Are there more examples for static or dynamic records?
  • Which computer systems require validation?
  • Does this guidance replace to "Part 11 Scope and Applications Guidance" from 2003?
  • Under which circumstances can I delete the electronic records after I have printed and signed the paper records?
  • FDA requires availability of 'complete' records, what does this mean?
  • How to define raw data and meta data vs. data?
  • How to best demonstrate data integrity and security?
  • Is e-audit trail still under enforcement discretion and what does this mean?
  • FDA requires reviewing electronic audit trails. Who should to this, when and how should it be documented?
  • How important is risk assessment for managing data integrity data, are there examples?
  • I scan paper  and store PDF files in a data base - is the scan an accurate copy of the paper?
  • The EU/PICS Annex 11 requires indicating changes of raw data on print-outs, how can we do this, is this also recommended by FDA?
  • Should I be able to reprocess the electronic 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. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations and case studies.
