Course Description:
In every laboratory inspection there are always two teams – the auditors and the auditees. Whether you are performing the audit or receiving the audit, there are rules, techniques and tips that will make your job more effective and reduce audit observations. This interactive and exciting seminar will look at various laboratory audits (GLP, cGMP, GCP, EPA) from both perspectives. You learn what auditor s look for, see examples of best practices and also hear war stories of things gone wrong as you get to experience both sides of the process. We will use presentation, discussion, exercises, role playing and workshops so that you experience what it is like to be an auditor and how to receive an audit.

This seminar will include overviews of the various regulations that affect laboratories and understand how they drive the audit, including 21CFR Part 11 as so many modern laboratories rely on computer-based data acquisition and reporting. We will provide forms and templates used in conducting audits, and train on when and how to utilize these tools. Each participant will write an audit observation as an auditor, and separately respond as an auditee to an observation and design a corrective action plan. We will explore all the aspects of laboratory operations including test methods validation, notebooks, instrument and equipment qualification, training records and data systems that are subject to audit.

You will leave these two days of training ready to receive an inspection with confidence in your new skills. You will be better prepared than ever before to be part of a less stressful audit with fewer observations.
