The GAMP Good Practice Guide on the Validation of Laboratory Computerized Systems is one such guide that was published in (12). GAMP Good Practice Guide: Page 3. Validation of Laboratory Computerized Systems. Table of Contents. 1 Laboratory Computerized System Categorization. The GAMP Good Practice Guide: Validation of Laboratory Computerized Systems is targeted to laboratory, quality, and computer validation.

However, regardless of the approach taken, the system configuration must be documented partly for your business to allow reconfiguration of the system in case of disaster but also for performing the validation. However, this goes against how the rest validayion the organization works; it is important to emphasize that laboratories are not unique islands inside an organization — rather they are an integral component of it. Software Support for M Like what you are reading?
The left-hand side shows the system development life cycle SDLC that is intended for more complex systems and the righthand side which shows the system implementation life cycle SILC for simpler systems. The three instrument groups are described along with suggested testing approaches to vwlidation conducted for each. Once the software functions have been understood, an application configuration specification can be written that will state what functions in the software will be used, turned on, turned off or kf.
Qualification is part of validation, but the individual qualification steps alone do not constitute process validation. Moreover, because laboratory systems — system impact table some systems can be classified in a number of laboratory categories there is a possibility that the impact of a system can be underestimated. You’ll also note that a system can be classified in more than one GPG class depending on the software functions. Installation of the instrument is relatively simple and causes of failure can be easily observed.
How likely is the occurrence of this mistake? Once this has been performed, then the macro is installed with the application and it is tested under the performance qualification PQ phase of validation as an integral part of the overall system.

Conformance to user requirements is highly method specific according to the guide. Overall, the problem with this GPG is that you have to cherry pick the good bits from the bad. In contrast, the left-hand side and centre columns show how systems from the traditional GAMP software categories map to the new GPG categories.
They are looking at different parts of the same overall problem and coming up with two different approaches.

To do otherwise is sheer stupidity. Therefore, why should valjdation risk analysis methodology that is very effective for new designs and processes be dumped or foisted on laboratories using mainly commercial systems?
Appendix 2 covering the testing priority is a relatively short section that takes each computrrized in the URS and assesses risk likelihood likelihood or frequency of a fault versus the criticality of requirement or effect of hazard to classify the risk into one co,puterized three categories category 1, 2 or 3. The definitions of the different types of GAMP software are?
There are alternative and simpler risk analysis approaches that can be used for the commercial off-the-shelf and configurable COTS software applications used throughout laboratories. OK this approach is simpler but the only consideration of the computer aspects is limited to data storage, back-up and archive.
Until we have this integrated approach guive will be confusion in this area. The recommendations given in this guide are meant to help the user in the pharmaceutical industry to develop a rationale for a graded scope of the validation of computerised systems in the lab.

Although this is usually a unique and custom application. You do not usually need to do as much work practicd qualify an instrument for an intended purpose as you would validate a computerized system. Examples of this group are ovens, vortex mixers, magnetic stirrers and nitrogen evaporators. Equipment used in the manufacture, processing, packing or holding of a drug product shall be of appropriate design, adequate size, and suitably located laboratoey facilitate operations for its intended use and for its cleaning and maintenance.
For example, we use the same qualification terminology IQ, OQ and PQ for both instrument qualification and computer system validation but they mean different things. Many suppliers have always performed equipment checks to confirm functionality of their equipment to defined specifications, both prior to and after installation.

McDowall, Quality Assurance Journal, 11 1 Get the latest articles from Pharmaceutical Online delivered to your inbox. Using ckmputerized approach, I believe that you will be performing over complex and over detailed risk assessments forever for commercial systems that constitute the majority of laboratory systems.
Especially as it goes against the advice of the GAMP Guide in Appendix M4, which states that the validation approaches for Category 2 systems consist of qualification steps or activities. News June 15, Therefore, we now have conflicting guidance from the same organization on the same subject — you can’t make this stuff up! The oc offers guidance for addressing strategic and tactical computer system validation issues such as: These simple principles are easy to grasp and allow any laboratory full flexibility to be made of the risk-based approaches to regulatory compliance.
Section 5 of the GPG also notes that ” Tampa, Florida, USA How good are the chances for the potential mistake to be discovered in time?
Thus, this approach is rather simplistic from the computer validation perspective. Consider the following issues that are not fully covered by the AAPS guide that will now be enshrined in a formal regulatory text: Have we forgotten that all CDS have both the instrument equipment and system components computer and training elements?
It is the computerized system that controls the whole — not the instrument.
