Computer System Validation – Periodic Review

Both the FDA and EU GMP’s detail the requirement for demonstrating that a computer system remains in a validated state throughout its operating history.

FDA 21 CFR 211.68(b) States:
“Input to and output from the computer or related system of formulas or other records or data shall be checked for accuracy. The degree and frequency of input/output verification shall be based on the complexity and reliability of the computer or related system.”
