Workshop Overview

Computer System Validation (CSV), or Software Validation, is a critical regulatory requirement mandated by Health Canada, the FDA, and the European Union. This regulation ensures that all computerized systems or automated data processing systems used in the healthcare industry (including Pharma, Medical Devices, Logistics, and Warehousing) are validated for their intended use according to established pre-defined protocols before production use.

This workshop provides a foundational understanding of Software Validation and its regulations throughout the life cycle of any computerized system. This workshop equips participants with the essential knowledge required for day-to-day operations in any regulated healthcare industry.

Participants will explore the regulations and standards behind CSV, gain insights into recommendations and best practices, and understand the role of GAMP®5 (GAMP5). Additionally, the workshop will cover the competencies required for a validation team and offer practical comprehension and application of CSV techniques to ensure efficient, effective, and inspection-ready validation initiatives.

Who Should Attend​

This workshop is designed for professionals involved in the healthcare industry, including Pharma, Medical Devices, Logistics, and Warehousing sectors, who are responsible for the validation of computerized systems. It is particularly beneficial for quality assurance professionals, regulatory affairs specialists, IT personnel, validation engineers, and compliance officers. Additionally, individuals involved in developing, implementing, or overseeing validation protocols and procedures will find this training invaluable for ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.
