About Computer System Validation Workshop

Validation of computer systems has become imperative over the last decades as it plays a crucial role in getting compliant with GAMP guidelines.

As there are latest tools & technologies available to validate computer systems, pharmaceutical manufacturing companies have to meet regulatory guidelines and expectations to avoid 483s and pass FDA inspections. Recent EU and FDA inspection documents prove that qualification, validation and electronic laboratory records are on target of inspectors. The large numbers of warning letters issued to pharmaceutical manufacturing companies also demonstrate that the industry struggles with either understanding or implementing the regulations.

To ensure that companies successfully pass FDA inspections and to also make sure that companies smoothly adopt latest tools & technologies available for validation, CPhI is pleased to announce the 5th Edition of ‘Computer System Validation Workshop’ which is scheduled on  15th -16th November 2018 at Meluha The Fern An Ecotel Hotel, Mumbai.

 The workshop will help you:

  • To understand regulatory requirements and risk-based approach under GAMP guidelines.
  • To deal with data integrity related issues with the support of good documentation practices.
  • To overcome challenges in adopting paperless validation tools
