    Does anyone know if continuing to use Windows 7 as your operating system have any compliance implications?

    Dear Julie, Using the old version of OS does not automatically mean a compliance issue. It is recommended installing new updates/patches as soon as possible for security reasons. However, it also depends on the risk for IT systems running under the old OS. You should have a documented risk assessment justifying your decision of not changing the OS, evaluating impact on your systems (especially on GxP systems) and defining mitigation measures to reduce identified risks.
