Course "Equipment, Facility, and Process Qualification and Validation - A Simple Top to Bottom Sustainable Approach" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.


Companies face many common issues and confusion when creating or revamping their validation programs. Some of these common issues are:
• Company has expertise in its process validation program but can never quite get is arms around the facility and equipment changes that require never ending equipment qualification (IQ, OQ, PQ),
• Customer or 483 audit findings require the company to deviate from its own validation program to meet the needs of the FDA or the customer
• For systems that employ software and hardware, how does the company manage the validation activities (i.e. through the software validation effort or through the equipment qualification program?
Well, the answers to these and many, many more typical questions are now available in this simple to understand, yet detailed training session designed to help manufacturers of FDA regulated products build (or rebuild) a sustainable validation program.
