Meeting equipment validation requirements from the FDA and EU

Putting in place a program for calibrating and maintaining test and measurement equipment is a regulatory requirement from both the FDA, under 21 CFR Part 210 and 211, and relevant EU regulations. Both these agencies have regulations that require this program from manufacturers.

The purpose of this equipment validation program is to ensure these among others:

o  The equipment is reliable and is capable of performing the use to which it is being put

o  It is safe

o  It ensures free flow of work

o  Keeps costs of preparing it down

o  Ensures that the company does not spend too much on premature replacements.

These are some of the ingredients of this program:

o  Intervals

o  Scheduling

o  Specific procedures

o  Limits of accuracy/precision, and

o  Remedial action when the equipment does not meet established requirements.

Main aspects of equipment validation

Equipment validation has to be done from these three perspectives:

o  Installation Qualification (IQ)

o  Operational Qualification (OQ)

o  Performance Qualification (PQ)

o  Change control & Requalification

Validation before and after use

Validation has to be done prior to use. An equipment must be validated to ensure that it the product being produced meets its specifications. In addition, there are ways of validating equipment that are already in use.

A thorough and proper understanding of how to plan and implement a program for the validation and maintenance of test and measurement equipment will be the learning a webinar that is being organized by Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will offer.

This webinar will have Jeff Kasoff, a senior Regulatory Affairs professional, who has more than 30 years in Quality and Regulatory management; as speaker. Jeff brings the rich experience of having implemented and overseen quality system operations and assured compliance, at all sizes of company, from startup to more than $100 million in revenue.
