The pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industry delegates the control of most of the processes to a number of computerised systems. As a consequence, these systems have become critical components for ensuring compliance of GxP regulations.
Health Authorities worldwide have significantly increased the pressure over them and their hosted data. As a recent example, the expectations on Data Integrity for electronic data have experienced a dramatic increase with respect to the procedures and requirements applied in the last ten or 15 years since the latest guidances on the application of 21CFR part 11 or the latest version of EU GMP Annex 11.This higher pressure produced a significant increase of the amount of observations in regulatory inspections, related to computerised systems, with special relevance in the topics related with data integrity. These observations may result in serious problems with Health Authorities, with severe consequences for the company financial results and public reputation.
In this situation, the regulated industry is being forced to increase the technical and regulatory approach of their computerised systems validation and management practices, as otherwise they may not fulfil the expectations of current inspections
