Ten years after its publication, the ISPE GAMP® 5 Guide: A Risk-Based Approach to Compliant GxP Computerized Systems is regarded as the definitive industry guidance on GxP computerized system compliance and validation for companies and suppliers and is referenced by regulators worldwide. Read the article written by Sion Wyn, member of the GAMP® Community of Practice, about the relevancy of the Guide and where the GAMP® community should focus its efforts in the future.

GAMP® 5 provides pragmatic and practical industry guidance to achieve compliant computerized systems fit for intended use in an efficient and effective manner. This technical document describes a flexible risk-based approach to compliant GxP regulated computerized systems, based on scalable specification and verification.
