Computerized systems are used throughout the life sciences industry to support various regulated activities, which in turn generate many types of electronic records. These electronic records must be maintained according to regulatory requirements contained within FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11 for US jurisdictions and Eudralex Volume 4 Annex 11 for EU jurisdictions.
One of the requirements for such compliance is the generation and review of audit trails. Thousands of audit trail records can be generated on a daily basis.
Why Should You Attend:
This webinar will demystify audit trails and describe the benefits of audit trail for your company. Attendees will the tools required to generate compliant audit trails on a domestic and international basis and will answer the questions on how to handle systems without automated audit trails, in a compliant manner.
Additionally, attendees will learn how to review audit trails, using a risk-based approach to cull through the thousands of audit trail records that can be generated on a daily basis.
