Why you should attend
Document Management and Data Integrity are increasingly becoming a focus for regulatory inspections globally. Data Integrity issues can apply to all life science industry sectors where data is required to fulfill regulatory requirements, including clinical trials, pharmacovigilance and manufacturing. Data Integrity issues from inspection findings have resulted in a marked increase over recent years in both EU non compliance reports and FDA warning letters, as regulators are concerned about Data Integrity failures in poor documentation. Regulators, including the FDA and MHRA have reacted to this by issuing guidances that contain provisions on Data Integrity and documentation. This concise course will provide an essential understanding of the requirements for ensuring Data Integrity and effective document management in order to maintain compliance with the new regulatory requirements in this area.
