Course Description:

There are best practices associated with testing methodologies used in the FDA-regulated arena, and these can be used to develop a standard and consistent approach within a company. Computer system validation has been regulated by FDA for more than 30 years, as it relates to systems used in the manufacture, testing, distribution and management of a product in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, animal health, tobacco and other regulated industries. Testing is a key aspect of computer system implementation, validation and all activities related to the system development life cycle (SDLC). As such, there are specific deliverables and key tasks that must be completed in accordance with FDA requirements.
