This topic is focused on the use of mobile applications to process data regulated by FDA. These applications may be used to collect, analyze, transfer, report, or otherwise manage data that will be submitted to FDA and/or must be available for FDA review upon inspection or audit. Mobile applications may be used in any area of an FDA-regulated company. Functional areas where FDA-regulated data is typically processed include, but are not limited to Quality Laboratories, Manufacturing, Supply Chain/Distribution, Adverse Event Reporting, Post-Marketing Surveillance. Systems may also be used to monitor and/or control FDA-regulated processes and equipment, handle product labeling, product lot control, clinical trial and trial sample management, and many other processes.
In this webinar, the attendee will learn how to apply FDA guidance for computer system validation to mobile applications. We will detail the key areas of focus, including security, access and change control, along with the documentation that is required to create a complete and compliant validation package in a cost-effective manner.
Why should you Attend:
We will discuss in detail how computer system validation can be applied to mobile applications 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 validated state throughout its entire life cycle, from conception through retirement.
