Course Objectives:

Stability is defined as the capacity of a drug substance or drug product to remain within established specifications to maintain its identity, strength, quality, and purity throughout the retest or expiration dating periods. Stability assessment of drug products and drug substances are mandated by regulatory agencies across the globe. In fact stability testing issues are responsible for a quarter of all audit findings by regulatory agencies. Stability testing problems also are regularly cited in warning letters and sometimes result in costly product recalls.

This one and half day course and workshop is designed to provide everything you need to know on how to design and implement a comprehensive and compliant stability program.

The workshop emphasizes practical issues such as:

- Development of stability protocols
- Use of bracketing in stability studies

The course provides ample opportunities for group discussions, case studies and exercises. It enables participants to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the FDA, Health Canada’s and other regulatory agencies’ expectations.
