On-line Audio Seminar 156

Computer System Validation

Introduction, Requirements and Strategies for Implementation


Order Button

Software and computer systems used in regulated environments should be validated. But despite its 20-year history and many official guidelines and other publications developed by the FDA, the validation of software and computer systems still confuses people.

Key Questions related to laboratory equipment qualification are:

  • What are FDA’s expectations?
  • What exactly needs to be validated?
  • How to develop an effective validation program?
  • How much validation is enough?
  • What to validate for Part 11?
  • How to document validation plans and results?

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 FDA requirements, present strategies and an overview and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, test scripts, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA/EU guidelines, requirements, inspection and enforcement practices
  • Key elements of a computer validation program
    (Planning, DQ, IQ, OQ, PQ)
  • Strategies for most efficient testing
  • Handling changes: revalidation and documentation
  • Reducing costs through risk based validation
  • 10 worst mistakes you can make and how to avoid them
  • Documentation requirements

And for easy and instant implementation:
download 10+ documents from special seminar website
