21 CFR Part 11 (Electronic Records/Electronic Signatures) Compliance for Computer Systems Regulated by FDA

By: Carolyn Troiano, ERP Project Manager/FDA Compliance Consultant.
Product code: SEM55
Location 1: Philadelphia Mar 11 - 12


Course “Analytical Methods Validation and Transfer for FDA Compliance" has been Pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

"Each attendee will receive 2-Day workshop materials by the speaker. Seminar Also Includes Certificate, Complimentary Breakfast, Lunch & High Tea/Coffee provided by WCS"

The attendee will learn how to comply with FDA's 21 CFR Part 11 guidance, which addresses the use of electronic records and electronic signatures (ER/ES). There are specific security and authentication requirements that are not necessarily covered by the standard computer system validation (CSV) approach, and go somewhat beyond this.
We will also address the roles of people involved in validating and supporting the systems, aside from just the standard system users. There are many tasks and functions they need to understand in order to be in compliance.

•          Understand FDA requirements for clinical trial Computer System Validation (CSV)
•          Understand the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) approach to validation

•          Know how to monitor a clinical trial system that is in production, governing the data and system through retirement
•          Understand the roles and responsibilities required to validate a clinical trial system

•          Understand good project management principles, incorporating business process re-engineering and organizational change management into the process
•          Know the policies and procedures that must be developed and maintained to support the clinical trial system in operation
•          Understand how to leverage the vendor and other external resources to apply the best industry practices and avoid potential pitfalls when validating a clinical trial system
