Valdata’s Chemical Management System Incorporates Audit-Ready Features

I’ve never had... any corrective actions on an audit or observation in any negative way...

When a company receives a call from a customer (or an FDA inspector) notifying them of an audit, the first question is usuallly "are we ready"? For companies relying on paper batch sheets, manual data entry and manually enforced / recorded maintenance procedures and records, there is cause to worry.

According to BioPharm International, companies are best prepared for customer and FDA audits if they have:

“...invested the necessary resources toward understanding deviations and finding corrective actions to prevent them in the future, [and] established change controls and documentation practices that are carefully followed so that your company can respond to any type of problem...”

Valdata Systems has implemented a solution which gives companies a sense of confidence instead of panic. Valdata System’s Chemical Management System offers real-time, paperless control over all aspects of the manufacturing process:

  • Recipe Development
  • Receiving
  • Testing (LIMS)
  • Inventory Control
  • Pre-weigh
  • Manufacturing
  • Production

Developed to meet the strictest guidelines (including FDA’s CFR 21 Part 11), the software can produce an audit trail of every transaction. The system communicates directly with scales, so all pre-weigh and consumption data is guaranteed to be accurate which eliminates human error.

The system prompts and polices employees through every process from pre-weigh to resource maintenance, guaranteeing that no detail is left undone.

CEI in Ridgefield, NJ is one company who has gone through audits both with and without Valdata’s Chemical Management System. According to Dan Hare, Vice President of Quality and Regulatory:

“It has completely changed the way we’re audited. I’ve never had, since we put [Valdata’s] system in, any corrective actions on an audit or observation in any negative way in our raw material handling system.”

By investing in systems such as Valdata’s Chemical Management System, which provides not only the ability to control processes efficiently but also accurately records the data created, companies are better prepared to meet the strictest of guidelines… even those set by the FDA.
