Archiving Clinical Trial Documents - Understanding Regulatory Requirements for Paper and Electronic Records
Tuesday, February 25, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PST)
This webinar will cover regulatory requirements for archiving clinical trial documents, both paper and electronic records. It will focus on the key components of a digital preservation strategy to ensure the ongoing retrievability and accessibility of clinical trial electronic records.
Why Should You Attend:
- Do you understand what regulatory inspectors understand an archive to consist of?
- Do you understand what controls need to be in place for trial documents to be considered to be “archived”?
- Do you understand how to guarantee retrievability and accessibility of electronic documents long after the software that created them exists and for as long as those records are retained?
If you do not know the answer to one or more of these questions attending this one-hour webinar will help you to be better informed requirements for archiving.
This session will be introduced with an overview of the regulations that pertain to archiving of trial documents, including getting clarification on some of the key terminology used. We will then explore specific aspects of establishing and managing archives and how we can effectively meet the expectations of regulatory agencies. Managing electronic documents introduces an additional level of complexity due to the potential obsolescence of hardware, software and operating systems and the natural degradation of electronic storage media. We will look at strategies for mitigating these issues.
At the end of this webinar, participants will understand what the regulatory requirements are for archives and archival processes and will be able to describe the key components of a digital preservation strategy to ensure the ongoing retrievability and accessibility of electronic records.
