STERIS FINN-AQUA follows the GAMP 5, A Risk-Based Approach to Compliant GxP Computerized Systems.
GAMP 5 is built around a Risk-Based Management System for the development, supply and maintenance of automated systems by a supplier. Adherence to this management system by the supplier provides both the system and sufficient documentary records to enable the complete system to be accepted and validated by the user. GAMP provides documented evidence and a high degree of assurance that the specific process will consistently produce a product meeting its pre-determined specifications and quality attributes.
The standard unit and all standard options are built according to GAMP 5 guidelines.
Special features will be designed and assembled in compliance with GAMP 5, but the GxP risk assessment of the customer-specified features will remain the responsibility of the specifying party.
Finn-Aqua control system software does not contain ‘dead’ code. ‘Dead’ code is defined by GAMP 5 A Risk-Based Approach to Compliant GxP Computerized Systems, February 2008 Appendix D4: Guideline for Management, Development and Review of Software, paragraph 3.1.6; Removal of Dead Code.
