News / Events

Meet Thescon at the 24th GQMA Annual Meeting on March 27th 2019 in Berlin.

Ingo Baumann, Thescon Partner and Senior Compliance Advisor, speaks about data integrity at the 24th GQMA Annual Meeting

If you look at the past warning letters of the FDA there is almost always one infringement recorded – and that is non-compliance of data integrity.

However, data integrity should be familiar to companies within the regulated industry, since the topic of data integrity is mentioned in many regulations (e.g. EU Eudralex Vol. 4 Chapter 4, Annex 11, 15; US 21 CFR Part 210, 211, 212, Part 11 and WHO Annex 2) and has been a relevant aspect in the GAMP® 5 (published in 2008!).

Recently published papers provide guidance and best practice approaches, which should help companies to comply with data integrity requirements.

Our presentation will summarize the most relevant data integrity requirements and potential “traps” in this area. And it will show the chances and opportunities, that data integrity activities might offer.
