The current GXP regulations focus more and more on the topic of risk management in CSV. This seminar will provide you with guidance in carrying out risk assessments when validating computerized systems. The basis of the seminar will be the current requirements for the validation of computerized systems, such as GAMP®5, and their GxP-oriented application in practice. 

Why you should attend

Computerized systems are a central factor in achieving GXP compliance in the pharmaceutical industry. Their use increases product safety and saves time and costs of manual intervention, but this means that all computerized systems which can influence the quality of pharmaceutical products must be fully validated.

  • GAMP®5 - A Risk-Based Approach to Compliant GXP Computerized Systems
  • ICH Q9 - Quality Risk Management
  • 21 CFR Part 11
  • Eudralex Annex 11
  • FDA, MHRA & WHO guidances on data governance & data integrity
