Computer Systems Validation

CSV is a comprehensive approach that ensures the reliability, accuracy, and integrity of computer systems

With over 20 years of computer systems validation experience

We work to create CSV processes that are based on FDA regulations and guidance, best practices, and the characteristics of the system being validated.

 

As scientific applications constantly evolve to keep up with the needs of the people and businesses that use them, Life Science companies must perform validation activities on an ongoing basis in order to reduce compliance risk, ensure quality, and maintain data integrity

A “Computer System” is more than just computer hardware and software – it also includes any equipment and instruments linked to the system, as well as the trained staff that operate the system and/or equipment using SOPs and manuals.

Computer system validation requires a comprehensive set of both static and dynamic testing activities that must be conducted throughout the Software Document Life Cycle (SDLC)

At Techno Service, we are experts in IT risk identification and management along with regulatory compliance. As such, we understand that computer system validation is not a “one size fits all” process.

With over 20 years of validation experience, we work to create CSV processes that are based on the latest FDA regulations and guidance best practices, and the characteristics of the system being validated. Our CSV processes typically involve

Features

determination of which systems need to be validated

analysis of failure scenarios

clearly defines what the system should do, along with operational (regulatory) constraints

defines objectives of the validation and approach for maintaining validation status

documentation showing that the network and infrastructure hardware/software supporting the application system being validated has been installed correctly and is functioning as intended

clearly defines how the system will look and function for the user to be able to achieve the user requirements.
