Event Details

Biopharmaceutical industry regulators have a renewed focus on Data Integrity (DI). In spite of company managements’ unflinching commitment to resolving data integrity issues, they continue to be cited with warning letters and 483s. This may be attributed to their oversimplification of the issue by making it an intensive documentation exercise and solely focusing on system-based assessments. Furthermore, employees erroneously view DI procedures as unique to their business unit or department or group thereby rendering procedures developed by one business unit as being not applicable to other units. Instead, they need to adopt the “least burdensome approach” where DI procedures are established using a process centric view instead of a system centric one.

The “least burdensome approach” involves the smallest investment of time, effort and resources. Common core activities that affect data integrity across all groups and divisions are identified and control measures are established to address these vulnerabilities. Such an approach helps to ensure the establishment of a data integrity program that is relevant across the enterprise.

Applying the “least burdensome approach” is the focus of this presentation. It will provide answers to the following:

  1. Why is process oriented the right approach to establish a data integrity assurance program;

  2. Using process oriented approach to conduct a Data Integrity Risk Assessment;

  3. What is DI’s 5P model and how to use it to establish a DI Assurance program;

  4. What DI documents regulators expect to see and what should these documents contain;

  5. Review of DI related 483s and Warning Letters for the past 5 years and current citation trend;

  6. Advanced topics: Data Integrity Maturity model.
