FDA requires that all computer systems that handle data regulated by the Agency to be validated in accordance with their guidance on computerized systems. In 1997, 21 CFR Part 11 was issued to address electronic records and signatures, as many laboratories and other FDA-regulated organizations began seeking ways to move into a paperless environment.
This guidance has been modified over the years to make it more palatable to industry, and this includes discretionary enforcement measures. The intent was to avoid creating a huge regulatory compliance cost to industry that was initially preventing companies from embracing the technology.
This session will industry expert Carolyn Troiano, provide insight into current trends in compliance and enforcement that can help in preparation for an FDA inspection or audit of computer systems that are regulated. There are some key areas of focus that will be covered that will help you to plan for an on-site inspection.
FDA requires that all computer systems used to produce, manage, and report on “GxP” (GMP, GLC, GCP) related products be validated and maintained in accordance with specific rules. During the session, Carolyn Troiano will help you understand the FDA’s current thinking on computer systems that are validated and subject to inspection and audit. She will also take into account areas where FDA will likely focus their effort, including on the higher-risk systems.
As a “GxP” system, following Good Manufacturing, Laboratory and Clinical Practices, the computer system must be validated in accordance with FDA requirements. If electronic records and/or electronic signatures (ER/ES) are incorporated into the system, FDA’s CFR Part 11 guidance on ER/ES must be followed.
Carolyn will focus on the key areas that are most important, including security and data integrity. Implementing and following the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology is the best approach for computer system validation and maintaining data integrity. The life cycle approach takes all aspects of validation into account throughout the life of the system and the data that it houses. The data is a key asset for any FDA-regulated company and must be protected through its entire retention period.
In preparation for an audit, it is important to assess the documentation that was prepared when each GxP system was validated to identify and remediate any gaps or issues. The FDA contact person(s) should be able to tell the story of how each system came into Production in a validated state and how each system is maintained in that validated state with the data integrity assured.
It’s important to have the right resources and understanding of the process prior to any inspection. Having the validation information available and key resources who can speak to various components of it is critical and should be arranged in advance.
Lastly, Carolyn will impart practical tips drawn from authentic FDA inspections and the valuable lessons learned, all of which will be shared with the audience.
FDA requires that all computer systems that handle data regulated by the Agency to be validated in accordance with their guidance on computerized systems. This guidance was first issued in 1983, and the main points of focus remain consistent today, despite the number of years that have passed and the technology changes that have taken place.
The FDA computer system guidance was revisited for its application to the medical device industry, as the first issuance addressed pharmaceuticals. In 1997, 21 CFR Part 11 was issued to address electronic records and signatures, as many laboratories and other FDA-regulated organizations began seeking ways to move into a paperless environment. This guidance has been modified over the years to make it more palatable to industry, and this includes discretionary enforcement measures. The intent was to avoid creating a huge regulatory compliance cost to industry that was initially preventing companies from embracing the technology.
Additional guidance was provided in late 2018 on Data Integrity to address an increasing trend in industry findings. This session will cover best practices in industry to address these issues and ensure inspection readiness.
This session will also provide some insight into current trends in compliance and enforcement. Some are based on technology changes, and these will continue to have an impact as new innovations and technology come into use in the industry. Again, we will help you position your company in a state of inspection readiness.
