Whether you work in production or in a laboratory or if you conduct investigations or finalize product release, sound data and information is essential to success and compliance.

To ensure success and avoid those frustrating, embarrassing discussions of missing or doubtful data, laboratory employees must follow good documentation practices.

According to the FDA, if it isn't written down, it didn't happen. As well, if it isn’t written down clearly, it didn’t happen either. GMP compliance (21CFR, Part 211) requires the use of good documentation practices. These practices apply to all pharmaceutical manufacturing and support areas. Good Documentation Practices describe the required activities and steps to use when recording data and other handwritten entries. Personnel who work with documentation must be informed of these requirements, recognize their significance to their job and be aware of the consequences of non-compliance. During this 1-hour webinar, we will review the Good Documentation Practices plus demonstrate examples of these practices (both good and bad!) as they apply to the pharmaceutical arena.
