VALIDATION PLAN

Qualification Planning.

The Validation Plan (VP) is probably the most important of all documents in a validation project.  It is an essential document in giving assurance that the validation task can be successfully executed in an effective, timely and cost effective manner .  Simply because this is the stage in the operation where all aspects of the validation are highlighted, debated, allotted and budgeted for. Once the full scope of the validation task is unearthed; then and then alone, can all these facets be catered for and sensible time lines and responsibilities deliberated.  To this end there may be several VA in any major validation project.  Each VP will cover identical or similar equipment where the validation responsibilities and scopes are identical or similar and can be adequately defined in one plan.

 

The top level of the User Requirements Specifications (URS) must be in place to enable the author(s) of the VP to start assessing; not only the basic user level requirements but the attendant needs that the user level requirements make requisite, such as; staff levels, user training, maintenance training, utility and facility loadings.  Along with these requirements will come a multitude of other minor and major issues that only ever become obvious after such extended and invasive studies are completed.  Only when these requirements are fully reviewed and documented, can they be accurately quantified.  However once they are defined, then the VP can start to allocate and document individual staff responsibilities and individual and collective achievable time lines.  Now the stage has arrived where a defined, detailed and workable validation plan can be documented, reviewed, and subject to reviewed comments being incorporated; issued by management as the official plan of action.

 

The VP is the document that the company must use to authorise actual validation methodologies, scopes and associated individual responsibilities (by job title).  It therefore has to work hand in hand with the Validation Risk assessment(VRA).  The VA must list all the equipment that it applies to and the VRA must be executed against each of the items in this list.  On completion of each execution the appropriate scope of validation will be indicated by the VRA.  This scope must be entered into the appropriate section of the VP, before it becomes an approved and locked controlled document.  The VP will therefore list the scope of validation applicable to each listed item along with any individual specific methodologies that should be used.



VP Plan Scope.

The Validation Master Plan (VMP) is the single most important document because it describes the basic concept for your overall site validation programme. This interactive detailed document is a delight and simple to use.  The generic template and attached SOP lead you through the whole process quickly and seamlessly.  This thirty page document is suitable for all types of pharmaceutical /biotechnical / medical device / API, manufacturer and or processer.  The VMP addresses process validation, facility validation, utility validation, equipment qualification and cleaning validation. The objective is to define responsibilities, outline your methods involved in the qualification and validation of your facility, define the areas and systems to be qualified and validated and to provide a programme for achieving and maintaining a validated status.

SOP for Spreadsheet Creation.

Why does something as simple as a spreadsheet figure in so many regulatory citations? Good question; and at times a difficult one to answer. When you ask a group of compliance personnel the same question you will be informed that Excel cannot be validated because it does not seal the original copy (of the spreadsheet), allows the original to be modified and has an audit trail that can be disabled. All true, but none of these problems interfere with your ability to validate that the spreadsheet is fit for purpose. They only preclude you from using the spread sheet as a compliant repository for any data that has to be store in compliance with 21 CFR Part 11.
If the spreadsheet is signed off and dated by the user, their supervisor and QA, it becomes regulatory acceptable data stored in hardcopy, and Part 11 does not apply.
After numerous requests for this, we have launched our brand new SOP for Spreadsheet Creation to cover these and other known target points that the regulators consistently hone into as soon as they find that spreadsheets are being used. Use this Spreadsheet Creation SOP to ensure that you create spreadsheets that are validatable. Then use our spreadsheet validation pack to validate them.

Equipment combined IQ/OQ/PQ Protocol.

This combination protocol has been produced in response to several hundred reader suggestions we received in our ‘Suggestions Section’. It has been carefully designed to make it the preferred choice for Process and Laboratory stand alone equipment. It is interactive, easy to use and suitable for all mixes of equipment with and without software.
The IQ section establishes documented verification that key aspects of the equipment adhere to approved design intentions and that the recommendations of the manufacturer have been suitably considered. The OQ section establishes that there is documented verification that the installed system functions as specified and that there is sufficient documentary evidence to demonstrate this. The PQ section gives documented verification that the equipment performance in its normal operating environment is consistently exactly as specified in the URS.

Validation Risk Assessment.

It now appears that the current FDA Guidance rules pertaining to 21 CFR Part 11 may be with us for a longer time than was originally anticipated. So we have incorporated the guidance suggestions in their latest guidance document, into our current Validation Risk Assessment (now issue 10), which is now available for immediate download. This VRA document now comes with a downloadable matrix for registering the justification for all your Part 11 assessments as this is now a mandatory requirement.
