ComplianceOnline Announces Virtual Seminar on Analytical Instrument Qualification and System Validation

“Analytical Instrument Qualification and System Validation” Seminar has been added to’s offering.

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 / — ComplianceOnline, the world’s leading provider of training for regulated companies is holding a seminar entitled ‘Analytical Instrument Qualification and System Validation.’ The seminar will be held on July 12-13, 2021, and will be presented by Dr. Mark Powell who has over thirty years of experience as an analytical chemist.

Analytical equipment should be qualified, and computer systems should be validated to demonstrate suitability for their intended use. To be acceptable to regulatory authorities, electronic records must comply with 21 CFR Part 11, Annex 11 to EU GMPs and more recent data integrity guidance. Recent EU and FDA reports demonstrate that qualification, validation and electronic records are priority areas for inspection. A large number of FDA warning letters and the frequency of EU enforcement action in these areas demonstrate that companies sometimes struggle to understand or implement the regulations.

This 2-day course guides attendees through equipment qualification, calibration and computer system validation processes from planning to reporting. It also explains regulatory requirements in these areas, including EU and US GMPs, as well as data integrity guidance documents from national and international regulatory bodies.

The course not only ensures a full understanding of the regulations and guidelines for equipment and records but helps attendees to develop a risk-based approach to compliance. Interactive exercises will be dispersed into and between the presentations.

• Learn about the regulatory background and requirements for equipment qualification according to USP <1058> and computer system validation according to GAMP 5
