Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

An effective quality system program, along with several regulatory requirements, includes the documentation and evaluation of changes made to validated equipment, utilities, processes and controlled documents. To control this process, one must have both a defined change control procedure that outlines responsibilities and documentation requirements and a form by which required information is recorded. The effectiveness of these items will determine the success of your change control program and help assure regulatory auditors that your equipment, utilities and systems remain in a state of control.

This webinar will concentrate on three major points:

  • The regulatory requirements for change control and what it applies to.
  • How to develop a change control SOP that will define what is required, responsibilities, and a means to quickly provide summaries of changes to investigators.
  • What are some of the common deficiencies cited by regulatory auditors?

In addition, the webinar will also highlight some of the benefits that a well maintained change control program provides to a company along with reviewing when change control is not required. Attendees will be able to ask questions on issues relating to their own change control procedure.
