Tyson Mew, president of Ofni Systems, will be at the 4th Global QA Conference & 30th SQA Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, NV, from April 6–11, 2014. Ty will be demonstrating how ExcelSafe gives your analytical spreadsheets the controls and security features needed for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
Easy-to-create and surprisingly powerful and flexible tools for data storage and processing, spreadsheets are so common that they can almost seem invisible. However, GxP data stored or processed with spreadsheets must be maintained in accordance with all applicable regulatory requirements, especially 21 CFR 11, Electronic Records Electronic Signatures. The FDA is aware of the usefulness of spreadsheets but expects controls to be in place that ensure spreadsheets used in GxP processes are compliant with 21 CFR 11 and are validated. As FDA enforcement of 21 CFR 11 increases, uncontrolled spreadsheets represent an area of increased QA concern.
SQA’s 4th Global QA Conference & 30th Annual Meeting is a six-day conference for discussion of emerging trends and issues affecting Quality Assurance practices in regulated industry. Hot topics include Computer Validation, Scientific Archiving, Industry Best-Practices, and Compliance. The conference will feature a number of industry expert talks and opportunities for knowledge exchange among QA peers from around the globe.
Ty Mew and Ofni Systems will be available throughout the conference to discuss spreadsheet and software compliance and validation.
Registration information for the 14th Annual Computer and Software Validation conference is available here.
