Objectives

As a specialist for the validation of computerised systems, this Live Online Training will provide you with
  • Suggestions on how current regulatory guidance on computerised systems relating to data integrity, critical thinking and CSA (Computer Software Assurance) can be put into practice
  • Real-life examples of how validation effort can be scaled according to risk-based approaches
  • Answers to specific questions, e.g. on source code review or on creating specification documents
  • The opportunity to bring questions from your own practice up for discussion

Background

div>The V-model has become a standard worldwide methodology for the validation of computerised systems. Regulatory requirements, as well as industry guidelines, like GAMP®5, are orientated towards this model. In practice, you as a validation specialist will want to know how to apply this model to current and increasingly complex validation projects.

Target Group

div>The Master Class is directed at employees from
  • IT
  • Production
  • Engineering
  • Quality Assurance
  • Quality Control
Participants should already have gained experience in the validation of computerised systems, and preferably will have also attended a basic CSV Course.

Technical Requirements

For our webinars, we use Cisco WebEx, one of the leading suppliers of online meetings. At https://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html you can check if your system meets the necessary requirements for the participation at a WebEx meeting and at the same time install the necessary plug-in. Please just enter your name and email address for the test. If the installation is not possible because of your rights for the computer system, please contact your IT department. WebEx is a standard nowadays and the necessary installation is fast and easy.
