What you'll learn in this medical training:

This course has been designed to help you understand the process validation concepts for medical devices and pharmaceutical products. This also covers the following:

  • Determining which process must require validation
  • Evaluate if the process is capable
  • Monitors and controls for the process
  • Statistical methods
  • Software qualifications

Course Benefits

Participants will understand the validation process and master skills necessary to validate processes.

Topics Covered:

Module 1 – Validation Concepts, Terms, and Definitions

  • Understand the basic concepts of process validation, including the need to validate
  • Identify conditions when process validation is required
  • State the QSR definition of process validation
  • Compare and contrast process output verification with process validation
  • Describe additional process requirements for validated processes
  • Compare and contrast IQ, OQ, and PQ

Module 2 – The Requirements Framework

  • Understand the requirements framework from FDA, ISO 13485, and OSHA
  • State the requirements for process validation from the FDA QSR
  • State the requirements for process validation from ISO 13485
  • Explain the relationship between process validation and a) medical device reporting, b) corrections & removals, and c) risk management
  • Identify the guidance documents published by FDA that relate to process validation
  • Explain the role of sampling in determining the need for process validation
  • Compare and contrast Lock Out – Tag Out with Machine Guarding

Module 3 – Process Validation Approaches

  • Module 3.1 – Example
  • Understand the typical approaches to process validation, the approaches that generated them, and a unified approach to implementation
  • Compare and contrast the QSR and ISO 13485 requirements for process validation
  • Define subsequent verification and its role in process validation
  • Compare and contrast prospective, concurrent, and retrospective validation
  • Compare and contrast installation, operational, and performance validation
  • State the five interlocking parts of validation
  • Explain the four process steps for each part

Module 4 – Installation Qualification

  • Understand the elements typically included in Installation Qualification (IQ)
  • Define Installation Qualification and describe its role
  • State the QSR requirements for maintenance and describe how IQ contributes to conformity
  • State the QSR requirements to post inherent limitations or allowable tolerances for equipment
  • Identify the source for maintenance information
  • State why you should identify all energy sources

Module 5 – Statistical Methods & Exercises

  • Review three common statistical approaches required for process validation
  • Review the process capability indices Cp and Cpk
  • Review the fundamentals of the x-bar & R chart
  • Review the concepts of designed experiments, both full and fractional factorial

Module 6 – Operational Qualification

  • Understand the purpose and role of Operational Qualification in Process Validation
  • Compare and contrast the FDA and GHTF definitions of Operational Qualification
  • State the source of production specification in the QSR
  • Describe challenge tests and their role in Operational Qualification
  • Explain how challenge tests can be related to designed experiments

Module 7 – Performance Qualification

  • Understand the purpose and role of Performance Qualification in Process Validation
  • Compare and contrast the FDA and GHTF definitions of Performance Qualification
  • Explain how performance monitoring can be related to statistical control methods
  • Explain the role of action limits in performance monitoring

Module 8 – Software Qualification
