Data Integrity: FDA/EU Requirements and Implementation: 2-Day Workshop by Dr. Huber
Dr. Ludwig Huber, Chief Advisor - Global FDA Compliance, Labcompliance
Coming soon.. Please contact customer care for new schedule
||Course "Data Integrity: FDA/EU Requirements and Implementation" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
There is no doubt that data integrity is the current and future inspection focus of all regulatory heath care agencies. More than 50% inspection reports such as 483's and Warning Letters quote data integrity as deviations from GxP regulations.
This new 2-day course provides the regulatory background and guides attendees through the complete record lifecycle from data entry or acquisition through evaluation, reporting, archiving and retrieval. It also helps to fully understand not only the text but also the meaning of related regulations such as FDA's Part 11 and the EU/PICS Annex 11.
The 2-day course not only ensures a full understanding of the regulations and guidelines for raw data and other records but also provides templates and examples to develop inspection ready documentation. Interactive exercises will be dispersed into and between the presentations. About 50% of the total time will be dedicated to practical sessions. Here attendees work in small groups on case studies and prepare the answers using prepared fill-in templates. After the course a large variety of tools such as SOPs, validation examples and checklists will be readily available on a dedicated website that can be used to easily implement what they have learned in the course.

Top exhibits include the Giacometti wing and Rodin's Gate of Hell.
Widely known as the principal boulevard in Zürich, the Bahnhofstrasse is Zurich's most famous shopping street.

Elephants, rhinos, tigers, penguins and 20 species of monkeys are just some of the more than 360 animal species that can be admired at the Zurich Zoo. In the Masoala Rainforest Hall visitors can experience a piece of Madagascar first hand. A must-see for young and old.
Switzerland's Limmat River is actually part of the Linth river, which continues from Lake Zurich. Zurich is the most famous city located along the Limmat Valley and the Limmat River provides a charming and beautiful waterway to explore the sights of Zurich by boat.
The Fraumünster Church overlooks one of Zurich's oldest squares and markets, the Münsterhof. Tracing its founding back to 853, when it was a Benedictine abbey, the church is home to five famous stained-glass windows by renowned artist Marc Chagall.
