Event Overview

This virtual symposium on data integrity is aimed at chromatographers and quality assurance professionals who have a working knowledge of data integrity within a regulated GXP laboratory. Thus, basic knowledge, such as an understanding of GMP regulations and ALCOA+ criteria, will be assumed.

In this interactive event, we will address four topics, which are essential for ensuring data integrity:

  1. An Update on New Regulatory Guidance Documents and Recent Regulatory Citations
  2. USP <1058> on Analytical Instrument Qualification and Considerations for Enhancement to a Full Life Cycle Process
  3. Putting What’s Wrong with Computerised System Validation Right
  4. Understanding the New USP Chapter <1220> on Analytical Procedure Life Cycle (APL)

We will tackle one topic per session. Each session will start with a presentation, which will include a question-and-answer period. This will be followed by an interactive workshop to reinforce the principles of each subject presented. For the workshop portions, participants will be asked to engage in answering questions and sharing ideas—fully anonymously—using a free web-based platform called Mentimeter (, which can be used through a web browser on any computer or phone. No download or prior preparation is required; the link and a code for accessing the workshop screens will be provided during the event.

Key Reasons to Attend

  • Keep up to date with current regulatory trends—including new regulatory guidance documents and recent trends in non-compliance.
  • Understand the impact of proposed changes to USP <1058> for Analytical Instrument and System Qualification
  • How the new USP <1220> lifecycle approach impacts the development, validation, and operation of analytical procedures
  • Learn why a business-driven approach to validating a chromatography data system increases lab efficiency and reduces the amount of work you have to do
  • Learn from interactive workshops to strengthen your understanding of these essential concepts in data integrity and how to spot and resolve problems.

Who Should Attend?

Chromatographers from Analytical Development and Quality Control Departments along with Quality Assurance personnel who are involved in data integrity and computer validation projects. Attendees should have a working knowledge of data integrity principles and GMP regulations.
