With GAMP®5, published in 2008, this guide became the globally accepted standard for the validation of computerized systems. Due to new technological (Artificial Intelligence / Cloud Computing / Agile Software Development) and regulatory developments (ICH Q9 / FDA initiative in CSA), there was a need for adaptations after 14 years. These adaptations have now been integrated into the 2nd Edition, which has been available. The publication of a 2nd Edition instead of a completely new GAMP®6 shows that the basic principles of GAMP®5 are still relevant. In the 2nd Edition, changes and further developments have been made according to the motto evolution instead of revolution.
FDA’s recent focus on data integrity during computer system validation inspections and audits has brought this issue to the forefront of importance for compliance of systems used in regulated industries. These include all systems that “touch” product, meaning they are used to create, collect, analyze, manage, transfer and report data regulated by FDA. All structured data, including databases, and unstructured data, including documents, spreadsheets, presentations, images, audio and video files, amongst others, must be managed and maintained with integrity throughout their entire life cycle.
We will explore the latest best industry practices offered in GAMP®5 (Second Edition) and understand what it offers to those validation computer systems in the FDA-regulated industries. We will cover the changes and impact on validation as a result. We will also cover FDA’s recent draft guidance on Computer Software Assurance (CSA) and what that means in terms of how to approach validation.
We will also walk through the entire set of essential policies and procedures, as well as other supporting documentation and activities that must be developed and followed to ensure compliance. We will provide an overview of practices to prepare for an FDA inspection, and will also touch on the importance of auditing vendors of computer system hardware, software, tools and utilities, and services.
Finally, we will provide an overview of industry best practices, with a focus on data integrity and risk assessment, that can be leveraged to assist in all your GxP work.
