In recent years, FDA has increasingly observed CGMP violations involving data integrity during CGMP inspections. This is troubling because ensuring data integrity is an important component of industry’s responsibility to ensure the safety, efficacy, and quality of drugs, biologics and medical devices. These data integrity-related CGMP violations have led to numerous regulatory actions, including warning letters, import alerts, and consent decrees. Attendees will obtain an understanding of the Regulatory expectations for Data Integrity. The information provided at the webinar will enable the attendees to review practices at their own site and identify gaps in their own practices. Data integrity and security infractions are not only 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 11 issues but also severe CGMP violations. The reasoning behind this complex issue is quite simple: if the integrity of laboratory data is compromised, batches of finished goods may not comply with regulatory authorization terms and, consequently, will not be released for sale.
