3-Hour Virtual Seminar on Excel Spreadsheet Validation for FDA 21 CFR Part 11

Overview: Spreadsheets such as Excel, are available for creating a wide range of end user applications, including widespread use in the laboratory, creating customized statistical analyses, the creation of local databases, data mining, and multivariate analysis. These may be used for GxP regulated activities, and they present particular compliance challenges, as Excel and other spreadsheets are not originally designed for the regulated environment.

Why should you Attend: Part 11 / Annex 11 Computer Systems Validation (CSV) is to be implemented in order to increase the integrity, accountability and security of the spreadsheets and achieve GxP Compliance. CSV enables the level and rigor of specification and verification applied to spreadsheets to be based on spreadsheet risk, complexity, and novelty. This bootcamp will provide the attendees with the tools for successful computer systems validation for Excel Spreadsheets.
