Dental Validation web page.

Dental Validation requires that all dental practices, workshops and manufacturers are compliant with the sections in 21 CFR Part 820 applicable to their activities. A trawl through current FDA Warning Letters however shows wide spread transgressions; many quite petty and simple to negate, others rather more serious and requiring a speedy in depth response.

It is imperative that companies which are in default respond to a regulatory default as soon as possible. Often it is not possible to immediately rectify all aspects of the default(s) – but it should be possible to design a concise defined remedial plan of action and present it to your regulators. After that it is paramount that the remedial plan; time lines and key-point dates are achieved and progress published. Such actions will give your auditors confidence that they can work with you rather than having to resort to citations.

Validation Online have produced a full complement of validation documents for dental facilities to use. Starting with the Validation Master Plan (VMP) continuing through the Validation Plan (VP) and on through the User Requirements Specification (URS) to the Validation Risk Assessment (VRA) and ending with the Design Qualification (DQ).

For the Installation, Operational and Performance Qualification protocols, we have opted to use a single combined IQ/OQ/PQ protocol. This document can easily be edited up or down in size and can be copied over as many times as is required.

Mandated Staff Positions.

This will be the individual with ultimate responsibility for decontamination equipment ownership and the definition and appointment of the following staff. In a dental practice, this could be the health service contractor, practice owner or a person of similar authority.

Decontamination Lead:

Risk Mitigation in Validation template (Issue 11) $125.00 The Risk and Part 11 Validation Risk Assessment(VRA) protocol is becoming the most important document in the validation online 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 Risk Mitigation in Validation template.

This VRA now includes the assessment table for categorizing 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. (now mandatory).

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’.

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, along with the installation qualification template.

Dental_Validation Package  $695.00

The DVP contains all the regulatory mandated documents. The hyperlinks and cross references between them make the package; not only unique, but also highly cost effective and intuitive to use. Each document is preloaded with the test scripts (complete with acceptance criteria). All test and inspection scripts are presented formally.

10002001. Validation Master Plan: (VMP). $115.00.

The VMP must present an overall picture of the company facility, organization and capability. It must give a clear and concise overview, to a reviewer, of how the company has integrated all applicable cGMP requirements into its operations. It must define validation activities and allot responsibilities for authoring, reviewing, approving, and executing validation documentation and tasks.

The URS is produced once the product is established. With the product concept documented – then the design / recipe can be further analysed. From these investigations the requirements for facilities, utilities, maintenance, calibration, operator skills, software, documented specifications and engineering drawings can all be extracted and provisioned for.


100042010 Validation Risk Assessment: (VRA) $125.00.

Risk Based Validation was introduced to apply a level of validation that was adequate to maintain confidence in the qualification process; but would reduce unnecessary repetitive testing. The Validation Risk Assessment (VRA) was therefore designed to ensure that this level of validation is consistently used.
