OPERATIONAL QUALIFICATION (OQ)

Operational Qualification Rationale.

This Operational Qualification (OQ) protocol comes with an interactive SOP as a prefixed document. As you complete the SOP you are auto populating the OQ. A really easy and straight forward document to use. In the preparation of the Operational Qualification validation protocols, it is important to allow a degree of flexibility. This must and should be specified in the Validation Plan (VP). Should the OQ remain untouchable until the Installation-Qualification (IQ) is completed and signed off? There are many instances where this is not just undesirable but senseless and deleterious to project progress and costs. Should every function in a system or piece of equipment be qualified? It makes little sense to fail something for not reaching a parameter that you are not going to use. The Operational Qualification includes a review of the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP's) for start-up, operation, maintenance, safety, and cleaning / sanitization as applicable, must they be in fully approved format? These flexibilities must be built into the qualification process. However there is an abundance of rules and guidelines that are not flexible, and must be rigorously adhered to. The modular process has been followed in constructing this Operational Qualification, in as much that where tests / inspections are standard for systems and or equipment, they are built into the basic protocol. Where they are not they are available as test protocols. Functional and software tests are authored in this stand alone test scrip protocol format. When the OQ is being raised they are pasted in. The document format will paginate them, and automatically add them to the ‘Table of Contents’. They are then part of the OQ. These Test Scripts can be held as Method Statements or SOP's. This allows the generation of a standard OQ that covers all the many items the regulators are looking for, with the facility to have integrated into it, the equipment specific testing tasks. It also means that these stand alone test scripts are available for tasks other than validation, i.e. when system re-testing is required.

It also saves unnecessary testing and re-testing. For example, when a room pressure regime has been commissioned by another party and the completed report is in date and available, is it practical and legal to use it? There is no reason why not, providing it has been authored, and executed using the same documentation practices and procedures as are used in the routine production and execution of validation protocols. The OQ test scrip will be of standard format, the contractors tests (containing the raw data) will be reviewed and data extracted from it. This data will be used to verify that the Operational Qualification test script acceptance criteria has or has not Operational Qualification Rationale.been satisfied. The raw data from the contactor now forms part of the OQ, and must be appended to it permanently, along with copy calibration certificates for all the test equipment used in obtaining the raw data.
Where you use your own indigenous testing methods contained in an SOP or a Method Statement (or whatever you decide to call them), they must be used in a manner similar to the manner the contractors raw data was used.





OQ Scope.

The scope of the OQ testing/inspections must include but is not limited to:

  • Verification that all loop installations;
  • Insert a brief description of what part of the validated product process.
  • Insert a brief description of the operational function.
  • An integrated loop test verification.
  • Testing of alarms.
  • Testing of interlocks and permissive conditions.
  • Testing of database or data storage integrity.
  • Testing of report generation and event chronicle.
  • Verification of the functionality of the equipment.
  • Challenge of software, where required;
  • Review of system functionality to verify compliance with 21 CFR Part 11.
  • If system must be 21 CFR Part 11 compliant, verification;
  • Testing of security levels to prevent;
  • Testing to verify and document Power loss Recovery.
  • Testing of all interfaces between;
  • Testing for Electromagnetic interference and compatibility.

    User Requirements Specification (Issue 7.) -- $115.00

    The document that sets the standard, and specifies your requirements in a manner that ensures when a system or piece of equipment is selected, it will deliver the functions you want, it will have maintenance standards, it will have calibration records, it will have all the documents and records to enable successful validation to be completed. This document was designed to be used as a live document up until the DQ is completed and approved. It uses three levels of URS, URS Level 1, 2 and 3, and is the only URS to guarantee traceability from the URS through to the final PQ and OQ functionality testing.  This is a mandatory requirement for Full Life Cycle Validation (FLCV) of computer systems that are the subject of predicate rules. It can be used on mechanical, electrical and software controlled, monitored or managed systems.

    Performance Qualification (P1Q) (Issue 5.) -- $89.00

    The Performance Qualification is the last of the qualifying tests that equipment and processes are subjected to, prior to the actual first product run. It maybe that there are some steps in the process that can only be verified by actually running them (quick freezing and sublimation, to mention only two) or it sometimes is the fact that the product is a very expensive product, and cannot be wasted. So no one wants to run the process with product, until they are completely certain there will be minimal waste. Template for VMP.

    Process Qualification (P2Q) (Issue 3.) -- $85.00

    The Process Qualification is the culmination of the validation process. The protocol is used in conjunction with the SOP for the process, to run three batches through the process being qualified and verify that the process consistently produces product to within the process specified tolerances. The results of the process must be recorder and reviewed with a view to ensuring that the deviancies (within permitted tolerances) that exist are random and not a trend that will lead to out of specification produce being produced.

    Validation Risk Assessment (Issue11.) -- $125.00

    The Risk and Part 11 Validation Risk Assessment (VRA) protocol is becoming the most important document in the validation train. The VRA reassures the regulators that you have looked at specific equipment functionality and considered the appropriate level of validation that is required. You have also considered various aspects of its use and the implications of any malfunctions. From the results of this exercise the scope of all validation activity can and must be justified. This is a robust and simple to execute document, one that will lead you through the process and deliver a result that can be used as the foundation for your validation activities.
    This VRA now includes the assessment table for categorising and documenting the new 21 CFR Part 11 guidance ruling on what predicate data must be stored in a Part compliant system, along with the new broadsheet to establish your new database of part 11 records. Template for VMP.(now mandatory).
