This FDA validation training will guide you through the validation planning which required meeting the US FDA & ISO 13485 Requirements.


FDA Warning Letters and recent high-profile recalls indicate major cGMP deficiencies in many companies. One major failing is lack of sufficient or targeted risk-based V&V planning. Starting with a Master Validation Plan, evaluating its elements against ISO 14971 hazard analysis / risk management, allows development of meaningful product validations. Also: The roles of different V&V protocols; How to employ equipment / process DQs, IQs, OQs, and PQs, against a background of limited company resources (personnel, budgets, time). A matrix simplifies “as-product”, “in-product”, process, and equipment, et al, software V&VT, assuring key FDA requirements are not overlooked. The QMS and 21 CFR Part 11 are considered.
