Objectives

Computerised System Validation: Introduction to Risk Management
 
Why you should attend this Live Online Training:
  • Get to know the current risk management approaches of ICH Q9 and GAMP® 5 2nd Edition
  • Become familiar with the use of the latest methods and tools for risk analysis when validating computerised systems
  • Learn how the activities involved in the validation of computerised systems can be controlled efficiently by means of risk management
  • In 3 workshops you can see how these procedures are applicable
Computerised System Validation: The GAMP® 5 Approach
 
Why you should attend this Live Online Training?
  • You will systematically be introduced to the principles and methods of the validation of computerised systems (according to GAMP®)
  • You will learn the skills to plan, implement and document effectively validation activities for computerised systems and to assess them with respect to their GxP compliance
  • In workshops / interactive sessions you can see how the theoretical foundations will apply practicable

Background

Computerised System Validation: Introduction to Risk Management
 
Current GMP regulations and guidelines (EU-GMP Guide Annex 11 ‘Computerised Systems’, ICH Q9, GAMP® 5 2nd Edition, ASTM E2500-20) focus more and more on the topic of risk management. However, the regulations do not offer much concrete advice on how their principles should be translated into practice during the validation and operation of computerised systems. Therefore, it is the aim of this course to provide you with practice- oriented guidance in performing this task.
 
Computerised System Validation: The GAMP® 5 Approach
 
Computerised systems are a central factor determining work sequences in the pharmaceutical industry. Their use increases product safety and saves time and costs of manual intervention. This creates the requirement and necessity, however, to validate all computerised systems which can influence the quality of pharmaceutical products.

The basis of the Training will be the current requirements for the validation of computerised systems like GAMP® and their GxPoriented application in practice.

Experts from the pharmaceutical industry and from the GAMP® Committee will show you efficient ways to validate your computerised systems.

Target Group

Computerised System Validation: Introduction to Risk Management
 
This Live Online Training is directed at employees from Production, Quality Control / Quality Assurance, Engineering, IT who have to deal with risk assessment and risk management in the field of computer validation.
 
Computerised System Validation: The GAMP® 5 Approach
 
This Live Online Training is directed towards specialists and executives in the pharmaceutical industry entrusted with the planning, implementation and evaluation of the validation of computerised systems.
