On-line Audio Seminar 186

Validation and Part 11 Compliance of Electronic Document Management Systems

- With Validation Examples from Planning to System Retirement -


Order Button

Document management systems are increasingly used to acquire, review, sign, manage  and archive  data and other records. When used in FDA regulated environments they should be validated and comply with specific regulations and guidelines for electronic records and signatures. There are no specific FDA or other guidelines for EDMS. The questions are how much validation is enough and how to ensure accuracy, reliability and integrity of records?

Key Questions related to Electronic Document Management Systems (CDS) are

  • What and how much to test?
  • Are vendor audits required?
  • How to define risk categories?
  • Should we test standard functions of EDMS?
  • Haw to validate networked EDMS systems?
  • How to validate existing systems?
  • What to revalidate and document after changes?
  • How to ensure and document system security and data integrity?
  • How to validate EDMS for Part 11 compliance?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and EU requirements for CDS - What do inspectors ask and what documents should be available.
  • Most frequently cited deviations related to EDMS.
  • How to develop a validation master plan for a EDMS?
  • How to write a user requirement specification document?
  • How to qualify vendors of commercial EDMS
  • Validation steps: DQ/IQ/OQ/PQ
