Course Information

Data integrity lapses, including the lack of control over access to computerised systems, non-contemporaneous record keeping and deletion, falsification, alteration and manipulation of data, constitute a significant fraction of cited in regulatory audits of pharmaceutical/biomedical manufacturing companies.

While a few of the lapses are intentional, many are unintentional and reflect a poor understanding and poor implementation of a data integrity system. Data is the fingerprint of the company’s processes and products.

This course will provide details of the data integrity requirements and regulatory expectations to enable implementation of required data integrity governance systems, methodologies and programmes.

This course will be relevant to all persons responsible for quality in the pharmaceutical or biomedical manufacturing industry; including persons involved in quality assurance, quality control, documentation, inspection and auditing, process development and manufacturing.
