The verification and validation of regulated software is coming under increased scruinty by the U.S. FDA.
This webinar will address the use of the FDA, GAMP, 21 CFR Part 11,"Electronic Records"/"Electronic Signatures", IEC 62304, and other applicable industry software validation models, coupled with the ISO 14971/ICH Q9 Product Risk Management models, to plan, structure, run, and document acceptable software validations.
The FDA and other regulatory agencies have stated that software validation can only be accomplished effectively if "risk-based". How can this be done in the "real-world".
This webinar will address software that is:
- Process and/or In Production and Test Equipment and
- The Quality System/CGMPs
A manufacturer is responsible to identify these requirements and implement them into an effective software V&V process.
Why should you Attend:
Software has become pervasive in medical devices themselves, and in the controlling, running and monitoring of medical product processes, whether they be in the pharmaceutical, medical device, biologics or dietary supplements industries. A quick review of Internet forums will show much confusion about the subject. Software is being developed for medical imaging, and even thought control of computers. It is increasingly being used for e-records and e-signatures.
The U.S. FDA rightly recognizes that virtually all software quality problems occur in the design, testing and validation phases, since replication of software is relatively defect-free. Regulatory auditors are more comfortable with delving into software issues. Effective and real world software V&V is even more important in today's resource constrained industrial environment. This discussion will focus on a preferred U.S. FDA documentation "model" in various applications, including ERP, in-device, as-device, process/equipment control, and cGMP data / 21 CFR Part 11 (and EU Annex 11) applications.
