This white paper, published by MasterControl, offers practical strategies for reducing overall validation time and costs. It explains the benefits of implementing a risk-based approach to computer systems validation.
Relevant and timely information contained in the white paper includes:
Computer system validation is an important component of risk management. No software is guaranteed by its manufacturer to be perfect. The more complex the software becomes, the more likely the existence of errors becomes. It is good business sense to prove to customers that the existing computer systems do what they are intended to do both functionally and operationally. This is the basis for computer system validation.
Computer system validation is required by FDA regulations and international quality standards, including: 21 CFR Part 11, 21 CFR Part 820, ICH Q9, ISO 13485:2016, and European Union’s Annex 11.
