An Introduction to Computer Software Assurance

Learn what the FDA’s new Computer Software Assurance (CSA) approach means for regulated life sciences companies.

Feedback from our Forward-Thinking GxP Compliance & Process Optimization event in January indicated that many in the industry wanted to learn the fundamentals of CSA. Sandy Hedberg fulfills that request in this on-demand webinar.

USDM has been applying a CSA methodology with our clients for more than a year. In this webinar, we explain the intentions and principles for the guidance and why this simplified, risk-based approach to Computer System Validation (CSV) can be applied to IT systems today.

For a webinar geared toward life sciences professionals new to the industry or pre-commercial companies selecting their IT systems, watch An Introduction to Computer System Validation.

This discussion of CSA includes:

  • Why the FDA is moving from “validation” to “assurance”
  • What CSA means to regulated life sciences companies
  • What is different from the traditional CSV
  • Case studies from companies that have transitioned to CSA
