Approach to Computerized Systems Validation and Compliance

About the Course

This online training course describes an approach to the validation and compliance of computerized systems used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, biologicals, and medical devices that are required to meet FDA’s regulations. It identifies ways to organize policies, procedures, and plans that the FDA expects a manufacturing company to establish. This eLearning course draws on current industry good practice. Though it also draws on FDA medical device guidance, this healthcare compliance course is not intended to describe an approach to developing software that subsequently becomes part of a medical device. This is the second course in a series of four courses. Before taking this course, you should have successfully completed Requirements for Computerized Systems Validation and Compliance.
