Order Button

Planning is the most important part of computer validation. Having a good plan in place with owners, deliverables and check points makes validation easy. A master plan increases the efficiency and consistency of validation and answers the inspector's question: what is your approach towards computer system validation. A master plan is also a requirement of European GMPs. A validation project plan guides validation professionals through the entire validation process from writing specifications to system retirement. However, despite of this importance, the regulated industry is unsure on how to develop and document such planning.

Key Questions related to master and project plans are:

  • What do FDA and other regulations say about planning of Computer Validation?
  • What exactly are the expectations of inspectors?
  • What do I really need: A "Validation Master Plan", a "Master Validation Plan" or is a "Validation Project Plan" enough?
  • Who should own all these plans?
  • How to develop such plans?
  • What should be the contents of the plans?
  • Which tools are available to manage and document planning?
  • How to make sure that the plans are properly executed in time?

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