"Hear By Angela Bazigos who recently quoted in Wall Street Journal for using training to bring regulatory compliance to the Boardroom"

In Dec. 2010, the FDA has stepped up enforcement for 21 CFR 11 compliance with spreadsheets being considered as low hanging fruit for FDA inspectional findings.


Spreadsheet applications such as MS Excel are frequently used in 21 CFR 11 compliant environments, but they were not specifically designed for regulated environments and their development is not optimized for 21 CFR 11 compliance. However, the FDA expects that spreadsheets be compliant and lack of compliance can result in a warning letter. Consequently, validation of Excel spreadsheet applications is required as part of a 21 CFR 11 compliant environment.
This training will outline the FDA requirements for Excel spreadsheets used in regulated environments and provide guidance on Part 11 validation. It will discuss the common compliance problems with spreadsheets and how you can avoid them. Attendees will also learn about documentation for Part 11 compliance and future trends in compliance for Excel spreadsheets.
