Analytical instruments should be qualified and systems should be validated to demonstrate suitability for the intended use. This two day in-person seminar will provide attendees the regulatory background and guidance through the complete process from planning and writing requirement specifications to vendor assessment, installation and operational qualification and ongoing testing during routine use. This interactive workshop will help attendees understand the instrument qualification and system validation processes and will provide templates and examples to develop inspection ready documentation.

Practical examples and interactive exercises will be dispersed into and between the presentations while 50% of the total time will be dedicated to practical sessions. During the seminar, attendees will work in small groups on case studies and prepare the answers using prepared fill-in templates. After the course a large variety of tools such as SOPs, validation examples and checklists will be readily available on a dedicated website that can be used to easily implement what they have learned from the course.

Vondelpark is the largest city park in Amsterdam, and certainly the most famous park in the Netherlands, which welcomes about 10 million visitors every year. The Vondelpark is centrally located south of Leidseplein and near Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum.

Oude Kerk

Oude Kerk

This old church with little houses clinging to its sides, remains a calm heaven at the heart of the freneric Red Light District. Its buildings, especially the Gothic-renaissance style octagonal bell tower, were used by sailors to get their bearings.
