What is GxP Compliance: Brief Overview
GxP compliance basically refers to the guidelines and regulations that are applicable to food and drugs manufacturing organizations. It also applies to medical software applications. The GxP framework ensures that medical and food products are safe for consumption. It also helps to ensure the integrity of data utilized in product manufacturing. GxP guidelines are established by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and exist to ensure safe development and manufacturing of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biologics, and other food and medical product industries.
GxP consists of a wide range of compliance activities that include Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Good Clinical Practices (GCP), Good Laboratory Practices (GLP), and more. The practice guidelines and regulations are implemented based on product type (medical devices and software) and the country in which the product would be sold. Life sciences organizations and food and drug administration performing GxP activities for quality management using computerized systems must ensure comprehensive data security.
By 2026, 80% of businesses will invest in solutions dedicated to safeguarding data privacy
Businesses that invested in data security experienced a return on investment (ROI) of 152% and recouped investment costs in under 6 months.
In April 2022, The Bank of Ireland attracted a fine of €463,000 for its inadequate measures to safeguard data security.
