Recognising the potential savings and flexibility available, regulated companies are increasingly withdrawing from ‘in-house’ developed solutions and looking to their external suppliers to provide them with innovative and compliant products and services which fulfil their operational and business Needs.
The EU-GMP Annex 11 on Computerised Systems states that ‘the competence and reliability of a supplier are key factors when selecting a product or service provider’; ‘Leveraging Supplier Involvement’ is also one of the 5 key concepts of the GAMP®5 guidance ‘A Risk-Based Approach to Compliant GxP Computerized Systems’.
This Online Training aims to provide attendees with the knowledge, and opportunities to practice the skills required, to achieve successful partnerships with their IS/IT suppliers and to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their validation processes.
This ECA Online Training is directed at employees from Production, Quality Control/Quality Assurance, Engineering and IS/ IT, who have to assess, manage or work with computerised system or service providers.
The Online Training will also be of value to representatives from supplier organisations that are working or seeking to work with Regulated Companies in the Life Sciences Sector.
