Process Validation for Medical Device Compliance
Date: Friday, July 14, 2017
Location: Paradise Pier Hotel, Disneyland Resort; Anaheim, California USA
Process Validation deficiencies are major quality system (21 CFR Part 820.75) compliance problems found during FDA inspections. Many FDA 483s and Warning Letters cite deficiencies in Process Validation during FDA inspections. A "lack of or inadequate process validation" was the 3rd highest Warning Letter observation in 2015 right behind Complaint Handling & MDRs (see Thursday's Complaint, MDR, & CAPA course). Over 349 medical device manufacturers have received Warning Letters that included process validation (21 CFR Part 820.75) deficiencies since 2005. There were 286 FDA-483 Observations in 2015 alone. This course will teach how to comply with FDA process validation regulations so that companies understand what is required to demonstrate compliance. It will also clarify the differences in process validation and various other validation & qualification activities. A logical approach to process validation will be discussed so that compliance is straight forward and easy to understand. Current FDA regulations and international guidance will be discussed. To allow for more time to focus & fully understand the requirements & approach to Process Validation, statistical math details will not be discussed.
