Carolyn Troiano has more than 35 years of experience in computer system validation in the pharmaceutical, medical device, animal health, tobacco, e-cigarette/e-liquid and other FDA-regulated industries. She is currently an independent consultant, advising companies on computer system validation and large-scale IT system implementation projects. During her career, Carolyn worked directly, or on a consulting basis, for many of the larger pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe. She developed 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. Carolyn has participated in industry conferences and is currently active in several IT and compliance professional organizations.
This webinar will help you understand in detail the application of FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11 guidance on electronic records/electronic signatures (ER/ES) for computer systems subject to FDA regulations. This is critical in order to develop the appropriate validation strategy and achieve the thoroughness required to prove that a system does what it purports to do. It also ensures that a system is maintained in a ..
FDA guidelines are very specific in terms of how computer systems are to be managed, and each company should have a specific strategy and methodology, along with a set of rigorous tactical processes and procedures that prescribe how Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning should be carried out. This is necessary to protect against the onslaught of threats and attacks, both from natural disasters ..
We will discuss in detail how computer system validation can be applied to mobile applications subject to FDA regulations. This is critical in order to develop the appropriate validation strategy and achieve the thoroughness required to prove that a system does what it purports to do. It also ensures that a system is maintained in a validated state throughout its entire life cycle, from conception through r..
This course is intended to provide specific guidelines for coaching attendees on the best practices for developing requirements for computer systems regulated by FDA. There are several key types of requirements that will be covered, including user, functional, performance, system, environmental and other categories.The attendee will learn about the requirements for planning, executing and documenting the re..
The Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD) is perhaps one of the most impactful incentives from the FDA as it helps get the product to market much faster than any other expedited approval pathway. Once a drug is successful in getting the BTD, the non-clinical and clinical requirements for market approval are significantly reduced. The applicants can request special meetings with FDA to discuss the developme..
We will discuss the importance of applying industry best practices when performing the validation process for a computerized system used in an FDA-regulated environment (i.e., the system "touches" product during the manufacturing, testing or distribution process). Such a system must be validated in accordance with FDA guidelines for computerized systems and documented accordingly. Testing is a very large co..

This webinar will help you understand in detail the new requirements for labeling from FDA and EMA, including a set of rules for electronic submission of labeling content, and strategies and actions for meeting the new challenges posed.Pharmaceutical companies must manage the process of designing and creating product labels that meet regulatory requirements. This includes product-labeling documents such as ..
Companies engaged in the conduct of human clinical trials must adhere to specific government regulatory requirements. Certain documents, content, and images related to a clinical trial must be stored and maintained, and depending on the regulatory jurisdiction, this body of information may be stored in a trial master file (TMF). This seminar will help you understand in detail the new requirements for trial ..
Effective and compliant computer system data management is critical to organizations in the pharmaceutical, biologics, vaccines, tobacco, animal health, medical device or other FDA-regulated industry. During the past 30 years, best practices have been developed to ensure computer systems used in these environments can be cost-effectively managed while meeting all aspects of FDA compliance. To take this a st..
We will discuss the importance of classifying computer systems subject to FDA regulations in accordance with GAMP V. This is critical in order to develop the appropriate validation strategy and achieve the thoroughness required to prove that a system does what it purports to do. It also ensures that you do not go beyond what is required for a specific classification of the system so as to be cost-effective...
Effective and compliant computer system validation is critical to any pharmaceutical or FDA-regulated organization. Following best practices for developing a validation program that includes planning, execution and maintenance components will ensure that these efforts will meet all regulatory agency requirements and expectations. Preparedness will improve your relationship with the agency and ensure a more ..
The market for counterfeit and contraband or “pirated” products can be divided into two important areas. The primary market provides consumers with counterfeit and contraband products. These consumers believe they have purchased genuine products. However, these products are often below standard and can result in health and safety risks that range from mild to life-threatening. The secondary market pro..
The webinar will leave you with the information needed to create and maintain good documentation that meets FDA compliance standards. You will learn about what must be done and what must not be done. In addition, you’ll learn about the various computer system validation deliverables and how to document them. This session will provide insight into the IEC 62304 standard as it is applied to medical device sof..
The FDA governs the computer systems used to collect, analyze, transfer and report data that is in support of human clinical trials required for drug approval. FDA oversight is based on a Predicate Rule, known as “Good Clinical Practices,” or simply, “GCPs.” Computer systems subject to GCP requirements must be thoroughly and appropriately validated in accordance with FDA’s guidance on computer system valida..
