Note: All times mentioned are CEST.


In this basic course, you will get an introduction and gain overview in the areas of computer validation (CSV) and data integrity (DI):
  • What is computer validation?
  • What is GxP data?
  • Why is the topic of data integrity currently in the focus of the authorities?
  • What are inspectors looking for?
  • Why does the topic of "data" affect all sectors?
Through examples and Q&A sessions, you will be comprehensively familiarized with the topic of GxP data.


The integrity of data is one of the basic principles of GMP and GCP / GLP etc. Therefore, it is often referred to as GxP data. In recent years, the issue of data integrity has increasingly become the focus of GxP inspections.
In clinical trials, for example, usually large amount of data is collected and this data is more and more electronically recorded and processed. The check of their data integrity is mandatory. In addition, sponsors contract out an increasing number of tasks in clinical trials to service providers. During inspections of commercial as well as academic trials, an increasing amount of deviations from GCP standards have been identified by the inspectors in view of sub-standard contractual arrangements and related procedures.
Amongst others, the expectation of the GxP inspectors is that companies have systems and procedures in place to ensure data integrity and risk-based audit trail reviews. Compliance with and adherence to these rules is therefore very important. To this end, employees must know and understand these rules.
In practice, the meaning and content of the various GxP requirements and their impact on product quality are often not or only partially aware. In addition, the relevant regulations and guidelines are subject to continuous changes and innovations. This event will therefore illustrate and expand on the practical implementation of these rules by means of examples and Q&A sessions.

Target Group

Addressed are all employees of the pharmaceutical production and technology, IT, quality control and quality assurance, who work in the GxP environment. Both new and experienced employees, the course facilitates understanding of the GxP measures taken or to be taken and their implementation in the company.
