Validation in regulated sectors 

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) imposes strict requirements on owners and operators of production facilities in regulated sectors. Manufacturers in these sectors, such as pharmaceutical companies, for example, are only permitted to produce goods in authorised facilities that are Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant. The same applies to software systems installed on devices used in such production facilities.  

You can find out more about the validation process of software systems being used in regulated sectors and discover how a software provider can help support pharmaceutical companies during this validation process, in our technical article: "Validation in regulated sectors".
