  • Get to know the differences between GAMP®5 and GAMP®5 2nd Edition.
  • What are the changes in the main part?
  • What are the changes in the management and Operation appendices?
  • How has the 2nd edition been affected by new technological developments
  • Critical Thinking in and about the 2nd Edition
  • FDA CSA (Computer Software Assurance) and the 2nd Edition - how do the two fit together?


With GAMP®5, published in 2008, this guide became the globally accepted standard for the validation of computerized systems. Due to new technological (Artificial Intelligence / Cloud Computing / Agile Software Development) and regulatory developments (ICH Q9 / FDA initiative in CSA), there was a need for adaptations after 14 years. These adaptations have now been integrated into the 2nd Edition, which has been available since July 2022.

The publication of a 2nd Edition instead of a completely new GAMP®6 shows that the basic principles of GAMP®5 are still relevant. In the 2nd Edition, changes and further developments have been made according to the motto evolution instead of revolution.

Target Group

This Online Training is directed at employees from
