In the years after, she has held positions in the Quality management arena while increasing her responsibility. She has helped to lead many Regulatory Health Inspections and was instrumental in the coaching process of her peers prior to any inspection. Currently, Danielle assists companies who are faced with warning letters, consent decrees, and those wishing to improve compliance to establish more robust quality systems so that the company can succeed.
Data integrity is the assurance that data records are accurate, complete, intact, and maintained within their original context, including their relationship to other data records. This definition applies to data recorded in electronic and paper formats or a hybrid of both. To assure the quality of raw materials, in-process materials, and finished goods, laboratory data integrity is assuming greater importance in current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-regulated industry. Data integrity and security infractions are not only 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 11 issues but also severe CGMP violations. The reasoning behind this complex issue is quite simple: if the integrity of laboratory data is compromised, batches of finished goods may not comply with regulatory authorization terms and, consequently, will not be released for sale.

Why Should You Attend
In recent years, FDA has increasingly observed CGMP violations involving data integrity during CGMP inspections. This is troubling because ensuring data integrity is an important component of the industry’s responsibility to ensure the safety, efficacy, and quality of drugs, biologics, and medical devices. These data integrity-related CGMP violations have led to numerous regulatory actions, including warning letters, import alerts, and consent decrees. Attendees will obtain an understanding of the Regulatory expectations for Data Integrity. The information provided at the webinar will enable the attendees to review practices at their own sites and identify gaps in their own practices.
