Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Lack of qualification or validation is a common FDA inspectional observation and FDA Warning Letter violation. Those involved in equipment qualification, including information technology (IT) and process validation will benefit from a review of the relevant FDA rules, written and unwritten.

FDA current Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations require that all equipment be qualified and all manufacturing processes validated.

Equipment qualification includes Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ) and Performance Qualification (PQ). All three will be discussed and examples from both manufacturing and laboratory equipment will be provided. Retrospective qualification of previously unqualified equipment already in place will be considered. Qualification of computer systems will also be presented.

Process validation involves proof that each step of a manufacturing process does what it is supposed to do. The degree of proof required will be discussed. When sampling after a step will not provide accurate information (e.g. some blend uniformity test results) will be considered.

These equipment qualifications and process validations must be repeated if changes are made or if problems are encountered, and periodically as necessary. How often to revalidate will be discussed.
