This education course will discuss the practical and proven techniques for conducting effective self-inspections/audits of various pharmaceutical operations, to identify the critical deficiencies associated with Data Integrity. A combination of presentations and case studies with participants’ collaboration will be offered to provide a maximum learning experience.

Participants will get to know all important elements of the Data Integrity inspection, the Data Integrity self-inspection and the customer Data Integrity audit processes. Furthermore, you will be informed about the importance of Data Integrity for the daily business in all areas of the company. Moreover, you will obtain a comprehensive overview of the regulatory requirements and recent audit and inspection trends.

As a production, QA or QC professional you will benefit by learning what the potential problem areas are – so you can take appropriate actions. You will become familiar with the audit tools that are available to you. And you will also have a chance to review and discuss current GMP compliance issues with the speakers.


This training course is designed for QA, QC and production professionals as well as GMP auditors who intend to specialize in Data Integrity auditing and who are facing  FDA and EU inspections. It is further intended for professionals who are responsible for GMP Compliance and Auditing, at both the beginner and advanced levels. Regulatory professionals who are responsible for FDA inspections should also attend. All attendees will gain practical knowledge in establishing an effective Data Integrity compliance audit programme.

Two Data Integrity Checklists!

All participants will receive two Data Integrity Checklists. One Checklist has been developed by APIC/CEFIC, the second Checklist has been developed by ECA´s Data Integrity IT Compliance Group. Both Checklists will be available in electronic format for daily use!
