Dr Wolfgang Schumacher
Dr Wolfgang Schumacher worked for ASTA Medica and F. Hoffmann-La Roche and has more than 30 years of experience in the Pharmaceutical Industry. After a successful career in Cancer Research he focused on the management of national and FDA inspections, auditing of contract manufacturers and the accountability as QP. At Roche he established the IT quality assurance department and was recently accountable in Technical Operations as Vice Director for the GMP/CSV compliance of all global computer systems and the setup of the Data Integrity program, for Genentech as well.


The topic “data integrity” is at present one of the major focal points in national and international Health Authority inspections. The American FDA has found a significant number of deviations which were reported in warning letters in the last years. In addition to the assurance of product quality the authorities require from all companies a clear strategy how the integrity of critical data can be ensured over their entire lifecycle. The Review of Audit Trails plays a key role in this respect. Despite the various guidelines which were published after 2015 there is no clarity about the requirements for Audit Trail review and how it can be implemented in the daily business.

Target Group
