A GAMP® Approach to Data Integrity, Electronic Records and Signatures, and Operation of GxP Computerized Systems
4-5 April 2019

The importance and amount of data being generated to ensure product quality and patient safety continues to grow and proper controls around that data continue to be questioned. Regulatory agencies across the world are noticing a significant increase in data integrity issues. As a result, they are being forced to re-evaluate industry guidance and their enforcement strategies. Regulatory concerns and warning letters have extended to all areas of the pharmaceutical business, including manufacturing, development, clinical, pharmacovigilance and other areas of the product lifecycle. This course will cover data integrity, electronic records and signatures, and the compliant operation of GxP Computerized Systems to provide the tools and techniques to implement proper controls for data to ensure the integrity and validity of the information throughout the data lifecycle.

The Pharmaceutical Quality System (PQS), supported by ICH Q10, is the key foundation on which product realization depend. Through lecture and group exercises this course illustrates how quality systems work, the purpose of the different elements, how they connect to each other and how to recognize and transfer knowledge/connectivity throughout the organization. The diagram below from ICH Q10, covers the product life cycle for a PQS/QMS system and all aspects will be covered by this course. We will be using QMS and PQS terms interchangeably throughout this course to establish a holistic approach.
