ComplianceOnline

This seminar will describe the requirements, the dos and don’ts commonly performed by laboratories, the writing of a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), and ways to ensure that it is followed, up to date, and archived properly.

The SOP is one of the core elements within a compliant laboratory. Any action in the laboratory must be done by following an SOP, no matter how common or seemingly trivial the action might be. Under GLP or ISO 17025, the SOP must guide those doing the tasks in such detail that there are no chances of unacceptable variation, any chance of a non-compliance. This is a very high bar to meet.

A poorly written and followed SOP is one of the most common non-compliances that an auditor finds. If you are a laboratory worker, a supervisor, or manager of a laboratory seeking or under GLP or ISO 17025, you should know how to create and maintain a good SOP. Will your SOPs pass an audit or will they become a non-compliance corrective action?

An SOP is a meticulous step-by-step description of how to do a task that leaves no chance for errors and divergence. Writing a good SOP is not an easy job. It requires a firm understanding of the task to be described, an ability to describe in specifics that are unique to that laboratory. Writing, implementing, maintaining, assessing, and revising an SOP are all different and necessary jobs. Many people must continuously be involved in these steps. The individual roles will be described for each.

Even a standardized method, such as an ASTM or IP method, is insufficiently written to pass as a well-written and compliant SOP. The reasons why will be described, as will the steps needed to convert a standard method into a compliant SOP.

The necessary steps both within the laboratory and within the supporting areas for implementation and revision of an SOP are complex and will be described. These include recordkeeping, safety, training, and other areas.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this course, participants should:

  • Know the roles within the laboratory of each individual in creating, implementing, monitoring, training, documenting, and updating an SOP.
  • Understand how the tasks in a methodology define the structure and detail in the SOP.
  • Understand the interrelationship of SOPs and how to incorporate those into a method SOP.
  • Know a cross-training approach to assess possible variation.
  • Know how to implement updates and when to changes are sufficient for a revalidated new version of the protocol.
  • Know the requirements and possible protocols for archiving.

In-Person Seminar going Virtual with increased learner satisfaction.

Yes, attend this seminar from anywhere. We are making it real and more interactive – Here's a sneak peek:

Our enhanced delivery process and technology provides you an immersive experience and will allow you to access:

  • The real-time and live presentation as in in-person events
  • Private chat for company-specific conversation – the same as you would get in an in-person seminar
  • Opportunities to connect with your peers to share knowledge at a different time and have group discussions
  • Live workshop activities
  • Live Q&A during the event and offline Q&A assistance after the event
  • As usual more content, activities and case studies and now adding homework for a comprehensive understanding
  • Certification

Who will Benefit:

This course is aimed at those working in laboratories that must comply with Good Laboratory Practice or ISO 17025, especially those whose results are to be reported to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The various roles:

  • Managers and supervisors of the laboratory
  • Quality officers and internal auditors
  • Scientists and research associates

John C. Fetzer, PhD,
Consultant, Fetzpahs Consulting

Dr. Fetzer has been a method-development analytical chemist for over 3 decades. In that role he developed new methods for GC, HPLC, fluorescence spectroscopy, titrimetry, the use of ion-selective electrodes, and physical properties of aqueous solubility and octanol-water partition coefficient that complied with Good Laboratory practices. As part of his consulting and contracting work he developed GLP-compliant methods for a biopharma startup and for a petrochemical company. In all of these various efforts, numerous SOPs were written, as well as the prototype of a later-approved ASTM method. He supervised and managed a GLP compliant laboratory for over 10 years and helped maintain the documentation necessary for compliance.
