Zielsetzung

  • Get to know the different types of Cloud Computing, their technical basics and their validation approaches.
  • What are the pharmaceutical authorities’ requirements with regard to Cloud Computing and what regulations have to be observed? An inspector will present his perspective to these questions and the experience gained so far in audits and will further cover critical points.
  • You can assess the use of  Cloud Computing from the perspective of IT security and data protection rules, and based on that you can formulate requirements for cloud service providers.
  • You can evaluate the opportunities and risks of cloud computing in the GxP environment.

Hintergrund

As well as in other sectors, the use of Cloud Computing is discussed in the pharmaceutical industry. For commercial reasons there is a lot speaking for the use.

However, is Cloud Computing an acceptable way in a GxP environment of the pharmaceutical industry? And, if yes, what has to be observed from the point of view of IT and quality assurance, as well as from the perspective of a pharmaceutical inspector?

From the points of view of the user and the pharmaceutical inspector this event gives you an overview of the current state of the technical possibilities. The speakers evaluate opportunities and risks of the use of Cloud Computing in the GxP environment and make recommendations for the pharmaceutical practice.

Zielgruppe

The event is aimed at employees who are entrusted with the planning and implementation of “cloud” projects in the GxP environment. The event also offers support for decision-making, whether cloud services are available as an alternative in the GxP environment.

Programm

Regulatory Background – important issues to consider from the point of view of an inspector
  •  Requirements for CSP (cloud service providers) resulting from Annex 11
  •  To dos for regulated users with respect to chapter 7 of the EU GMP Guide
  •  German drug law – does the German drug law or European Law effect the business of CSP; enforcement of corrective actions
