GAMP5 second edition - from fear for QA to productive cooperating

Aksel De Vries
MES/Quality advisor
GAMP5 second edition has taken the next step from risk-based approach to Critical Thinking. It is devastating for CSV consultants (read: me) as the massive overhead on project quality assurance is now rationalized. I like that. The fear mongering - originating from GAMP4 - is finally replaced by fostering effective cooperation between the shopfloor, process experts, and operational quality. In this presentation we go through CSA success factors, and discuss pitfalls to avoid.
