Computer System Validation (CSV) is a documented process that is required by regulatory agencies around the world to verify that a computerized system does exactly what it is designed to do in a consistent and reproducible manner. These regulatory agencies require CSV processes to confirm the accuracy and integrity of data in computerized systems in order to ensure product safety and effectiveness. In the United States, for example, the FDA requires pharmaceutical companies to perform CSV for systems that support the production of:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical Devices

Best Practices for Computer System Validation

  • Develop Clear and Precise Functional and User Requirements
  • Perform risk-based CSV.
