    Integrating Data Integrity Requirements Into Manufacturing & Packaging Operations

    Presenter: Chris Smalley

    Integrating Data Integrity Requirements into Manufacturing & Packaging Operations presentation sponsored by the PDA Delaware Valley Chapter. This presentation will review the basic issues of Data Integrity and will include important elements of the recently released PDA Technical Report on Data Integrity. Whether manual or electronic data, whether the integrity of data is lost due to unintentional, intentional or careless reasons, data is a valuable asset to the organization and needs to be properly managed. A key difference in this Technical Report from the previous Technical Report on Data Integrity in the Laboratory is the development of a risk tool for evaluating the risk to Data Integrity, which will be highlighted in the presentation.
