The topic is an overview of good documentation practices and applications to ensure data integrity. All materials subject to regulatory review needs to be complete and irrefutable.


The key learning objectives include what’s “good” in documentation practices, techniques to ensure “good” data is captured, and how data integrity is maintained throughout the life of the data.


Data integrity is increasingly a focus by regulatory bodies. There has been a recent spate of violations uncovered which have led to sanctions – and some increasing public distrust. The increasing emphasis on collecting clinical data throughout the life of the product increases the need for good documentation/data integrity.


Areas covered will include:

  • Basic documentation practices
  • Managing data collected during various activities
  • E-records and e-signatures
  • What metadata is?
  • Why is metadata important?
  • What an audit trail is and why it’s important?

This webinar is intended for people in the medical device or IVD industry. All product documentation and collected data are subject to regulatory review and need to be presented in a manner that promotes trust and understandability.
