    From GAMP4 to GAMP5, there is some consolidation in this area. GAMP5 lists two categories for HW (Cat 1 - Standard Cat2 - Custom-built). In addition, GAMP5 software categories 1 and 3 may apply to components that operate hardware (e.g.: firmware is Software Cat 3). References: GAMP5, Appendix M4 and GAMP Good Practice guide on IT Infrasture Control and Compliance.

      The above is not correct, and was never a correct definition. The GAMP 5 (2008) standard has the following categories.
      Category 1: Infrastructure Software
      Category 3: Non-configured products
      Category 4: Configured products
      Category 5: Custom applications
      GAMP applied/applies to S/W. An older version had a definition for Category 1 - operating systems, but it referred to S/W residing on operating systems, not the H/W itself. Same for the former definition of Category 2.
      GAMP 5 - 2008 is readily available, worldwide.

        G M Butcher - Which part of the above explanation is incorrect? What you have listed is for software (and everyone here is reasonably familiar with it, I reckon). The question is about hardware categorization and there is a reference to the same in GAMP5 (Refer to the Appendix M4 of GAMP 5 on Page 132). Trust this clarifies.

            Cat 1 ... standard hardware can be used with multiple things
            Cat 2 customize hardware used for specific purpose

                It is true that GAMP 5 2008 talked about HW Category 1 and 2 out of which 99% you will get to see Cat -1 - Standard. The soon to be published GAMP GPG on IT Infra and Control talks about Platforms, Processes and Personnel and platforms provide a well-defined foundation for other well-defined HW or SW components. Platform Qualification Plan separates the qualification of platforms from the validation of GxP applications i.e. adding or changing an application will not affect the qualified status of the platform (unless platform is impacted due to the changes).

                    GAMP Good Practice Guide on IT Infrastructure Controls and Compliance.. and its already published. You can buy it from the ISPE online store. I am happy to share an extract that doesn't violate the copyright. Please send me your email id.
