This seminar 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 ..
This Webinar will explain what 21 CFR Part 11 is, why it is important to FDA regulated companies and how conformance to Part 11 differs from just having good IT security. Procedures for controlling electronic signatures and electronic records will be explained. FDA regulated companies want to transition to electronic records for economy and efficiency. FDA, because of its concern for patient safety, wants t..
CAPA is both a precursor to and component of RCA that helps people prevent non-conformances from occurring and if all else fails; answer the question of why the non-conformance occurred in the first place. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a popular and often-used technique that helps people answer the question of why the problem. What is a non-conformance? When you have a non-conformance in the laboratory..

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..
Following the implementation of the results of a Human Factors/ Usability study, a validation of the safety and effectiveness of the use of the device must be conducted. We will explain the FDA required the number of validation participants from each "distinct user population". We will explain how to choose the tests to be conducted and the studies that must be completed prior to the actual validation test...
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..

Heat sterilization is a PROBABILITY function dependent on heat exposure, the number of microorganisms, and the heat resistance of the microorganisms. Current regulations expect the sterilization process to provide a level of assurance of at least 1 x 10-6 probability (fewer than one non-sterile unit per million units) of survival (non-sterility) for terminally sterilized parenteral and medical devices. Sinc..
