This training course offers a deep dive into the analysis required for Environmental Monitoring (EM) with specific consideration to cGMP and Data Integrity guidelines. As such, the training course is two-fold. The first portion focuses on primarily data analysis for EM. This is for both routine data analysis as well as the analysis required for excursions and investigations with respect to process risks and industry requirements/guidelines. The second portion deals with assessing and maintaining compliance to data integrity guidelines. These two seemingly independent subjects are tied together when we consider that data integrity best practices are required for compliant and meaningful data analysis. Data analysis performed for EM must be risk based, including assessment of data integrity. Furthermore, data integrity tools - such as accurately tracing actions through audit trails - can be crucial to investigations, an area cited by regulators.
