In a regulated environment an important part of business risk management is directly related to the organisation's computer systems. An ERP system implementation in this environment will usually be underpinned with a Computer System Validation (CSV) stream of activity which ensures that the system is compliant with regulatory requirements and all the necessary documentary evidence is available for audit.

“Lumenia has provided EirGen with strategic computer systems validation (CSV) expertise since 2009. With their in-depth knowledge of 21 CFR part 11 and EU Annex 11 regulations, they implemented a practical risk based approach to CSV for our GxP critical applications and underlying IT infrastructure. Lumenia successfully led the validation activities on our ERP SAP system, QUMAS Document Management system, and Waters Empower Chromatography system implementations, as well as the qualification of our IT Infrastructure. I would have no hesitancy in recommending Lumenia validation consulting services”.
