FDA Compliance and GAMP V Computer System Classification
Recorded Webinar
Duration : 90 Minutes

Carolyn Troiano has more than 35 years of experience in computer system validation in the pharmaceutical, medical device, tobacco and other FDA-regulated industries. She has worked directly, or on a consulting basis, for many of the larger pharmaceutical and tobacco companies in the US and Europe. Carolyn developed validation programs and strategies and participated in the review of 21 CFR Part 11, or the FDA’s electronic record/electronic signature (ER/ES) regulation. Carolyn is currently active in the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), and Project Management Institute (PMI) chapters in the Richmond, VA area.

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.

Upon completion of this session, attendees will have an understanding of how to classify computer systems in accordance with GAMP V, and develop a sound validation strategy for each system to meet FDA compliance. The attendees will understand the level of testing required for each classification, and the appropriate level of documentation that must be completed to support it. They will also gain an understanding of the training and skills required to both classify systems and work on various classifications of systems to validate or maintain them. The attendees will have a good grasp of how to leverage these practices across all systems by creating a standardized program for classifying systems in accordance with GAMP V.
