Computer Validation – A Common Sense Guide

This book was designed to share practical ideas that have been shown to work well in a variety of computer validation projects and global regulatory environments. These practices are not the only way to perform computer validation, but they are one way that experience has shown to be workable and inspected with positive results.

In chapter appendices there are 29 full scale examples of validation document sets, policies, and SOPs from real projects to illustrate the concepts discussed. In Unit 1, an extensive glossary of 80 validation-related terms provides the reader with quick access to definitions that are understandable by non-IT professionals.

To support focused and distance learning, this book is available as PDF downloads in specific training Units.  Dr. Stokes has used these Units herself as pre-seminar reading assignments for participants and also for Case Study exercises and Round Table discussion topics. They provide a flexible training program for all levels of expertise in FDA regulated industries where computer use is subject to Good Practices (Clinical, Manufacturing, Laboratory, Part 11).
