VALIDATION 4U PROCESS



Validation 4u Introduction.

Before commencing a validation 4u task; an experimental runs must be planned.

These runs must establish the exact parameters that your validation run is  going to use and or attain in the final qualification runs of the system under qualification.

Most validation efforts require some degree of prospective experimentation to generate and establish validation support data.  This particular type of process validation 4u is normally carried out in connection with the introduction of a new drug or medical device and or their manufacturing processes.  The formalized process validation program should never be under taken unless and until the following operations and procedures have been completed satisfactorily:

  1. The facilities and equipment in which the process validation is to be conducted meet CGMP requirements (completion of DQ, IQ, OQ and PQ).
  2. The operators and supervising personnel who will be “running” the validation batch (es) have a comprehensive understanding of the process and its requirements.
  3. The design, selection, and optimization of the formula have been completed.
  4. The validation 4u trials using an agreed size of pilot-laboratory batches have been completed, in which the critical processing steps and process variables have been identified, and the provisional operational control limits for each critical test parameter have been provided
  5. Detailed technical information on the product and the manufacturing process have been provided, including documented evidence of product stability.
  6. Finally, at least one validation4u trial of a significantly larger production batch has been made and shows up; on scale-up, that there were no significant deviations from the expected performance of the process.

Plan to use Validation 4u Retrospectively.

The retrospective validation 4u option is chosen for established products whose manufacturing processes are considered stable and when on the basis of economic considerations alone and resource limitations, prospective validation programs cannot be justified.  

Prior to undertaking retrospective validation 4u, wherein the numerical in-process and/or end-product test data of historic production batches are subjected to statistical analysis, the equipment, facilities and subsystems used in connection with the manufacturing process must be qualified in conformance with CGMP requirements.  

The concept is also recognized in the FDA’s Guidelines on General Principles of Process Validation 4u Using either data-based computer systems [28,29] or manual methods, retrospective validation 4u may be conducted in the following manner:


  1. Gather the numerical data from the completed batch record and include assay values, end-product test results, and in-process data.
  2. Organize these data in a chronological sequence according to batch manufacturing data, using a spreadsheet format.
  3. Include data from at least the last 20–30 manufactured batches for analysis. If the number of batches is less than 20, then include all manufactured batches and commit to obtain the required number for analysis.
  4. Trim the data by eliminating test results from noncritical processing steps and delete all gratuitous numerical information.
  5. Subject the resultant data to statistical analysis and evaluation.
  6. Draw conclusions as to the state of control of the manufacturing pro- cess based on the analysis of retrospective validation 4u data.
  7. Issue a report of your findings (documented evidence).


VALIDATION 4U PROCESS.


Combined IQ-OQ-PQ Computer (Issue-4) $159.00

This Pharmaceutical Validation 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 and associated standard operating procedure TEMPLATE. The associated medical device validation  Master Plan template is interactive, easy to use and suitable for all mixes of equipment with and without software. Where temperature mapping is required it will included in this section. This of course may well be a validation A Plan template. As per 21 CFR Part 11.

The Installation Qualification Template section establishes documented verification that all medical device validation template online executables are catered for and that key aspects of the equipment Qualification adhere to approved design Qualification template and the recommendations of the manufacturer have been suitably considered. The Operational Qualification Template section establishes that there is documented verification that the installed system functions as specified and that there is sufficient documented process validation A executables to demonstrate this. The PQ section develops documented evidence that all the requirements specified in your corporate validation 4U manual have been verified as operating consistently and exactly as specified in the medical device validation template; i.e, The User Requirement Specification template. 



User Requirements Specification (Issue 8) $115.00

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 User requirements specification template through to the final PQ and OQ functionality testing. A mandatory requirement for Full Life Cycle Validation of computer systems and compliance with Current Good Manufacturing Practice legislation. It can be used on mechanical, electrical and software controlled, monitored or driven systems and of course medical device validatioN Template along with the Software Qualification template.



Installation Qualification. SOP & Protocol (Issue 9.) $115.00 10000020

The Standard Operating Procedure template (SOP) used to generate this pharmaceutical validation IQ, takes you through the process line by line, chapter by chapter. It really is unique to find a SOP document so easy to use, all the work is done for you. All the documents are detailed, all the drawings listed and all the checks and tests detailed. The final product is a professional and comprehensive Installation Qualification Protocol. One that you can produce in less than 60 minutes. Yes, think about it, we all know how long producing IQ documents has taken in the past, whether for medical device validatioN  TEMPLATE or for being able to produce 4 to 8, IQ protocols per 8 hour day.



Operational Qualification, SOP & Protocol (Issue 10.) $115.00 

You will find the Operational Qualification template (OQ) delightfully simple and straightforward to use, as it takes you through the process of customization of your Operational Qualification Protocol template. Following the attached SOP will quickly and smoothly convert your template into an equipment specific 21 CFR Part 11 compliant Installation  Qualification Template. The OQ template comes complete with all the standard test scripts, more specialist test scripts can be found listed below. These can easily be pasted into the standard OQ, allowing you to quickly build your own fully detailed and referenced company bespoke Operational Qualification Protocol.



User Requirements Specification Template
$115.00

The User Requirements Specification template is the document that sets the standard, and specifies your requirements in a manner that ensures when a system or piece of equipment is selected for cGMP use that all essential support elements; i.e. maintenance, parts, operator & maintenance training, are planned and budgeted for.  It uses three levels of User Requirements Specification Template (URS), URS Level 1, 2 and 3, and is the only URS to guarantee traceability from the URS through to the final OQ and PQ functionality testing. A requirement mandated by cGMP regulations. It can be used on mechanical, electrical and software controlled, monitored or driven systems. 



Corporate Validation Manual $1,160.00

This definitive 1000 + page (including all attachments) Corporate Validation Manual arrives with you in USB memory stick format, this enables you at any time to download protocol or test-scrips documents and quickly edit them into company bespoke documents. In fact there are over $3,500.00 worth of superb documents, that form attachments to the DVM manual, which can be instantly copied. Once copied, the unique document interactive editing, allows you to produce high quality bespoke company documents; Such as the Validation Plan Template or the equally ubiquitous User requirements Specification template Design Qualification (DQ); in a few hours. The cost of the Definitive Validation Manual, will be recouped in the first few weeks of use. It will then go on to show a massive return on your original investment.
