Read Frequently Asked Questions

This ASTM E2500 training will review how these ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) and ICH (International Conference on Harmonization) approaches can simplify the qualification process.


Regulatory groups have responded by providing guidance documents such as ICH Q9: “Quality Risk Management” which encourages a level of risk appropriate to safety and efficacy and provides a toolbox of risk management methods. ICH Q8: “Pharmaceutical Development” encourages the use of scientific methods to mitigate risk through concepts such as Design Space, Quality by Design (QbD), Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and Continuous Verification.

Industry groups have responded with approaches such as the ASTM E2500 Standard Guide for Specification, Design, and Verification of Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Systems and Equipment provides an industry consensus framework to modify many of the cumbersome validation practices. The new standard strives to simplify the verification process by leveraging commissioning activities, with the engineering designers of equipment playing the key role in its qualification. With qualification activities consuming as much as 25% of the facility cost, a streamlined method for validation has the potential to result in large cost and time savings.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • This presentation will review how these ASTM and ICH approaches can simplify the qualification process.
  • Documentation of design.
  • Risk mitigation by design review and operational practices.
  • The role of subject matter experts.
  • Use of risk management techniques to drive the extent of systems verification and level of documentation detail.
  • Acceptability of well-managed changes to systems.

Who will benefit:

  • Biopharmaceutical and Medical Device Quality assurance professionals and mangers
  • Validation professionals, practitioners and mangers
  • Operations professionals and mangers
  • Engineering professionals and managers
