Validation and Change Control: The Validation Life Cycle

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

This seminar presents an overview of validation and change control as they pertain to pharmaceuticals manufacturing.  Dr. Amer will review the general validation approach, define what is meant by a validated state, and identify the need for having a change control system and procedure in place. He will define what a change control system entails and propose an outline of a robust change control procedure. The concept of validation life-cycle will also be introduced and its meaning discussed at length. The importance of change control in maintaining the validated state and closing the validation cycle will be discussed.

Managing changes in pharmaceuticals manufacturing through implementing a change control procedure is a regulatory requirement. Manufacturers of drug products are required to maintain the operations in a validated state and to have a change control system in place. This seminar is aimed at introducing the concept of a validated state and managing change within the validation life cycle. Dr. Amer will draw on his vast experience in the pharmaceutical industry to explain the concepts and provide many real life examples to support these concepts.
