Implementing Risk Management in the
Validation Process - ICH Q9

Conducted by Gamal Amer, Ph.D.
Principal - Premier Compliance Services, Inc.

January 24, 2014

In this seminar we will discuss the concepts associated with Quality Risk Management as outlined in the ICH Q9 Guidance and learn to develop a Risk Priority Number (RPN) for real life situations. This knowledge will then be applied to decision making in prioritizing and defining the extent of qualification necessary based on the concepts advanced in the FDA’s Guidance on Process Validation issued in January 2011.

  • What are the most risky operations in the Pharmaceutical industry
  • How to define risk levels and risk level factors
  • How to apply RPN to prioritize risk mitigation and the concept of “mitigating efforts being commensurate with the level of risk.”
