Expiration date of the validation of a computerized system


I wonder if it is possible that the validation of a computerized system has no expiration date, and that maintaining the validated state is verified only by means of a change control management .

Or must have an expiration date of the computerized system validation, despite having a change control system.

Thanks in advance.

There are many factors that could influence the state of validation of a software application beyond direct changes to the application, including but not limited to:

  • OS patches / upgrades
  • support library patches / upgrades
  • support application patches / upgrades
  • network changes
  • disk space availability

So expectations for a periodic review are well-founded.
