Carolyn Troiano has more than 40 years of experience in computer system validation in pharmaceutical, medical devices, animal health, tobacco, e-cigarette/e-liquid, and other FDA-regulated industries. During her career, Carolyn worked directly, or on a consulting basis, for many of the larger pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe, developing validation programs and strategies, and collaborated with FDA and other industry representatives on 21 CFR Part 11, the FDA’s electronic record/electronic signature regulation.

We will discuss the importance of applying industry best practices when auditing a vendor of hardware, software, or other technology, or a provider of technology services, such as system implementation, system configuration, system development, system integration, or similar activity. Computerized systems that are used in FDA-regulated environments (i.e., the system “touches” an FDA-regulated product or a raw material or packaging component used in conjunction with the product during the manufacturing, testing, or tracking processes). Such a system must be validated in accordance with FDA guidelines for computerized systems and documented accordingly.

It is important to be able to identify computer systems used when performing FDA-regulated activities. When a the vendor is involved, whether in terms of provisioning hardware and/or software, implementing the system, or maintaining it, this must be done in compliance with FDA requirements. A solid computer system validation strategy, along with an understanding of industry best practices, will lead your company to ensure that vendors are held accountable for the delivery of systems and services that will support your efforts to validate computer systems and maintain them in a validated state. This webinar will also provide guidance on the importance of factoring risk into all FDA-regulated activities and will help you assess the risk of any computer products purchased from third-party vendors. You will also learn how to develop a standard audit process, using templates and checklists, to ease the burden of this activity. Documentation is critical to proving that a system does what it purports to do and that a company has thoroughly scrutinized and effectively leveraged any third-party vendor that is involved in these efforts.
