Process validation can be classified as the validation of controlled interaction of components, equipment, environment, software and personnel to produce a product or achieve an acceptable outcome. Process validation is one of the most critical elements in the pharmaceutical industry today. The concept of process validation recognizes that quality cannot be tested into the product and must be designed into the process/product to reduce the risk of non-conformances during/after manufacturing.

This two-day comprehensive training workshop covers all aspects of process validation and is presented as a combination of lectures and workshop sessions. The course reviews the latest FDA’s new draft guidance and other regulatory requirements, including: ISO, E.U., Japan and ICH Q8, Q9, Q10.

This course provides practical guidance on compliance with the requirements of process validation that lead to risk-based, reasonable and supportable informed decisions. Compliance with the requirement for process validation must go hand in hand with sound science for the proper evolution of critical processes.

Attendees will gain a strong grasp of total process validation - from initiation through maintenance and Change Control, from both theoretical and practical aspects including major concepts and terminology of process validation, and major qualification stages of process validation and “what” and “how” to validate, with emphasis on written documentation and standard operating procedures.

By the end of this 2-day course and interactive workshop Sessions the following topics will be covered:
