Computer System Validation- Reduce Costs and Avoid 483

By:
David Nettleton, FDA Compliance Specialist, Computer System Validation
Coming soon.. Please contact customer care for new schedule

Course "Computer System Validation- Reduce Costs and Avoid 483" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Course Description:

This interactive two-day course will explore proven techniques for reducing costs associated with implementing, using, and maintaining computer systems in regulated environments. Today, the FDA performs both GxP and Part 11 inspections, the Europeans have released an updated Annex 11 regulation that expands Part 11 requirements and companies must update their systems and processes to maintain compliance.

Many companies outsource IT resources and are involved in Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud computing. These vendors are not regulated, and therefore, regulated companies must ensure compliance for both infrastructure qualification and computer system validation to avoid FDA form 483s and Warning Letters.

This course is intended for these regulated companies, software vendors, and SaaS/cloud providers. The seminar instructor will:

  • Address the latest computer system industry standards for data security,data transfer, audit trails, electronic records and signatures, software validation, and computer system validation.
  • Help participants understand the specific requirements associated with local and SaaS/cloud hosting solutions.
  • Illustrate the importance of validating the quality process and every computerized system used in laboratory, clinical, and manufacturing settings.
  • Demonstrate how to decrease software implementation times and lower costs using a 10-step risk-based approach to computer system validation.
  • Review recent FDA inspection trends and discuss how to streamline document authoring, revision, review, and approval.


Learning Objective:

  • Understand what is expected in Part 11 and Annex 11 inspections
  • Avoid 483s and Warning Letters
  • Learn how to buy COTS software and qualify vendors
  • Implement a computer system using risk-based validation to gain maximum productivity and reduce cost by as much as two thirds
  • Requirements for local, SaaS, and cloud hosting
  • How to select resources and manage validation projects
  • "Right size" change control methods that allows quick and safe system evolution
  • Minimize the validation documentation to reduce costs without increasing regulatory or business risk
  • Write test cases that trace to elements of risk management
  • Protect intellectual property and keep electronic records safe

Seminar Fee Includes:

Lunch
AM-PM Tea/Coffee
Seminar Material

Attendance Certificate
$100 Gift Cert for next seminar

Local Attractions

The Sydney Opera House is one of the most distinctive and famous 20th century buildings, and one of the most famous performing arts venues in the world. Though its name suggests a single venue, the project comprises multiple performance venues which together are among the busiest performing arts centers in the world — hosting over 1,500 performances each year attended by some 1.2 million people.




The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's most well known and photographed landmarks. It is the world's largest (but not the longest) steel arch bridge with the top of the bridge standing 134 metres above the harbour.




Sydney's most famous beach attracts large numbers of tourists to Bondi throughout the year with many Irish and British tourists spending Christmas Day there. Bondi Beach features many popular cafes, restaurants and hotels, some with spectacular views of the beach and surrounding headlands. The beach itself is approximately one kilometer long.




A lively harbourside precinct, Darling Harbour is just a 10-minute walk from Sydney city centre. One of Sydney's largest dining, shopping and entertainment precincts has a full calendar of outdoor events as well as one of the city's most restful spots, the Chinese Gardens of Friendship.




Taronga Zoo is the nation's leading zoological garden, featuring Australia's finest collection of native animals and a diverse collection of exotic species. It is home to over 2,600 animals on 28.7 hectares, making it one of the largest of its kind, and it divided into eight zoogeographic regions with numerous indoor pavilions and outdoor exhibits.




The Rocks is an urban locality, tourist precinct and historic area of Sydney's city centre, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It features a variety of souvenir and craft shops, and many themed and historic pubs. The Rocks Market operates each weekend, with around 100 stalls.




Sydney Tower is Sydney's tallest free-standing structure, and the second tallest in Australia (with the Q1 building on the Gold Coast being the tallest). The tower is open to the public, and is one of the most prominent tourist attractions in the city, being visible from a number of vantage points throughout town and from adjoining suburbs.




The Museum of Contemporary Art (abbreviated MCA) in Sydney, Australia is an Australian museum solely dedicated to exhibiting, interpreting and collecting contemporary art, both from across Australia and around the world. It is housed in the Art Deco-style former Maritime Services Board Building on the western edge of Circular Quay.
