In the FDA, EMA and most regulations, very little is said to guide you in what they expect of you with respect to design, construction, commissioning and start-up of facility, utility or equipment operations. Regulations are more focused on the output and operational aspects including the qualification and validation of activities. So many professional societies (PDA, ISPE) have taken the lead to aid practitioners to do the job right. But these are not regulations or even guidance; they are the industry’s interpretation of how to get to the finish line with minimal incidents.

In this Live Webinar, we will walk through the major areas of a plant, including the facilities, utilities and equipment in a critical manner to link best practices to the overall expectations of the agencies. That is the facilities, utilities and equipment design, construction, commissioning and start-up to the objective of assuring that they will lead to successful operations to yield consistent, reliable production free from cross contamination: the overall objectives of all regulatory bodies. We will focus on the qualification of these systems to assure this contributes to successful operations through the lifecycle of the plant and its operations. We will discuss strategies to operate efficiently, yet compliant in a risk based approach driven by data and scientifically driven means.

Learning Benefits:
-The expectations of the FDA and EMA and other regulatory bodies with respect to design, construction, start up and commissioning of facilities and utilities.
-How to maximize the output of your validation and qualification activities for your facilities, utilities and equipment yet minimize the input or work involved.
--How to tie the qualification processes to routine operations in an efficient and compliant manner including calibration and maintenance and periodic assessments of the qualified state of systems.
-Where companies fail to deliver a compliant systems putting their operations and compliance state at risk.
