Fundamental requirements for process validation in both FDA QSR and ISO 13485. Learn when a process should be validated, the basic components of a process validation (IQ, OQ, and PQ) and how to write protocols and reports.

Why Should You Attend:
Process validation, or the lack of it, is coming under close scrutiny by the FDA. It has been the subject of Warning Letters over the past few years. In addition, the FDA’s approach is changing. Instead of one common validation approach, the FDA Centers have started to go in different directions. Most likely, the FDA’s CDRH will follow the Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) guidance. Last, an effective process validation program can help reduce cost. Validated processes can operate at optimized points – points that eliminate or reduce the nonconforming material.

Your Quality Management System (QMS), should be able to address these questions quickly and easily. If not, then your team needs to attend this webinar!

This webinar defines the concepts, using diagrams, to help you understand the principles of process validation. It divides process validation into three phases: Installation Qualification, Operational Qualification, and Production Qualification. The seminar explains how to develop protocols for each phase and write reports that document the work.

In addition, the webinar explains the regulatory requirement for process validation ,both FDA’s QSR and ISO 13485. We will examine some FDA Warning Letters to help understand the requirements and explain the current status of the FDA and GHTF Guidance Document as it relates to medical devices.
