Understand the current expectations of EU Inspectors and the FDA regarding Data Integrity threats and issues

Data Integrity is currently a MAJOR focus area during regulatory inspections, with a number of recent regulatory guidance documents published on the subject.  It is therefore essential that you have the correct understanding of what is required.  This course covers the background to Data Integrity, why it is important and how its requirements affect both paper-based and computer-based systems.

Attend this one-day course and you will leave with a clear understanding of the expectations of EU Inspectors (such as the UK’s MHRA) and the FDA.  Moreover,  you will possess the understanding required to enable implementation of required the Data Integrity governance systems, methodologies and programmes within your organisation.

The tesimonial below relates to an in-house programme delivered by David:

David worked with senior management and key operational staff bringing a focus to the increased requirements with regard to data integrity. He presented a series of interactive training modules which were very well received and enabled staff to fully understand how we as a business need to further develop our systems. All feedback from the training was very positive. Ultimately our processes and procedures satisfactorily met the MHRA expectations during our recent audit. Personally I found David easy to work with and I would highly recommend him as somebody who could bring knowledge and clarity to the area of data integrity

Planning to perform audits

As with everything else in life, planning is everything. An audit is much more effective for everyone concerned if the auditor takes a short amount of time to plan the audit correctly. This article incudes a checklistlist of things to include in the planning of any effective audit.

Management Review – who, what, where and when?

The idea of Management Review meetings has only been a formal GMP requirement for the past 5 years or so. In the many visits that I do to pharmaceutical manufacturing sites I see these done – but rarely done well, which is a real shame. So what are these GMP Management Review meetings, why do we have them, what should be discussed, who should attend and how often should we have them?

Standards to use when auditing suppliers

If you are working to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) then you will need to audit many of your suppliers. GMP does not really tell you what pharmaceutical supplier standards you should or could use when auditing your suppliers this post lists of all the key standards to use when auditing suppliers including links to all of the key documents and authorities.

Data Integrity – why all the fuss?

The careful and secure control of data and records has become a hot topic at regulatory inspections recently. One reason for this is the increased use of computer systems to hold data in one form or another. Let me give you an example of how keeping data accessible can become problematic with a non-pharmaceutical example from my own childhood.

Problems and deviations – avoid blaming the operator

You should be careful of putting “human error” as the cause of a problem, without considering what caused the human to make the error in the first place

Key GMP personnel and their duties

Some of the most popular articles on our blog are the four we published some four years ago about the duties of key personnel in GMP. For more recent visitors to the blog I thought it might be helpful to remind everyone about this resource.
