The FDA's Process Validation Guide recently released changes the definition of Validation.
Are you equipped to respond to it?

Did you know that:

  • In the future Validation should be a product life cycle approach that starts with Process Design, and spans Process Qualification and Continued Process Verification.
  • Continued Process Verification is applicable to both new and legacy products, the Agency is looking for continual assurance that the process remains in a state of control, and there are new expectations for statistical reviews.

Join subject matter experts from industry and the FDA's Grace McNally for an interactive discussion to learn exactly what these changes mean to you. This first face-to-face opportunity since the Guide’s release can help you eliminate costly errors and avoid unwanted and wasted effort. Can you afford to miss this event?

This two-day seminar will bring together FDA and industry experts to address:

  • Current inspection findings
  • FDA expectations for GMP and quality systems
  • The quality of the supply chain by adequate qualification of vendors and contract manufacturers
  • Current expectations around management responsibility
  • CDER’s Part 11 inspectional assignments

New GMP initiatives include:

  • Q10 and process validation
  • Continuous manufacturing including PAT
  • Identifying leading problem indicators and examples of successful solutions with respect to a Quality Systems (QS) approach
  • Proactive QS elements (rather than defensive ones) in GMP and Quality Systems
  • Examples from Q8, Q9, and Q10.
