Extending the Life-Cycle of GMP Validated Legacy Systems

Replacement of GMP validated equipment requires IOQ, SOP creation and training. Maintaining legacy equipment can save time, money and reduce risk. This session will explore the technological challenges and regulatory compliance issues that you must consider when attempting to extend the end-of-life support of electronic control and process monitoring equipment with internal resources and through third-party vendors. At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to identify several technical aspects of legacy systems support as it relates to parts sourcing, service level agreements, backup and recovery processes, configuration management and system requirements.
