OECD Data Integrity US and International Compliance

November 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

OECD Data Integrity
US and International Compliance

1.5 CE Contact Hour
Location: ZOOM Webinar
Speaker: Eric Pittman, Director, Bioresearch Monitoring Division (West) at the US Food and Drug Administration, Greater Chicago Area

Moderators: Allison Oliva, OCRA Professional Liaison

During this presentation, Director Pittman will review and discuss FDA’s perspective on demonstrating compliance for US based studies that are also intended for submission in other OECD countries. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is a unique forum where the governments of 37 democracies with market-based economies collaborate to develop policy standards to promote sustainable economic growth.

OECD Document Number 22: Advisory Document of the Working Party on Good Laboratory Practice on GLP Data Integrity, issued Sep 2021. At the conclusion of the presentation, you should be able to access and understand the contents of Document Number 22 and apply the principles of Data Integrity to your systems.

Learn about Monitoring Authority’s implementation and enforcement examples. For instance,  in the US a study may claim compliance prior to inspection by the US Monitoring Authorities; once a study is submitted, it may trigger an inspection, where no compliance certificate is issued. However, in other OECD countries, test facilities must be inspected and certified by Monitoring Authorities prior to study initiation.

The US is an OECD member country and signatory to the OECD GLP Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD) system. This enables data acceptance between the US and all other OECD member countries. As part of the MAD system, the EPA and FDA share results of their inspections with other OECD countries. Review FDA’s perspective on demonstrating GLP compliance for US based studies that are also intended for submission in other OECD countries. Time will be provided for questions.
