  • 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.
