Assuring a higher degree of quality of drug products.
Validation is a process of establishing documentary evidence demonstrating that a procedure, process, or activity carried out in production or testing maintains the desired level of compliance at all stages. In Pharma Industry it is very important apart from final testing and compliance of product with standard that the process adapted to produce itself must assure that process will consistently produce the expected results. Here the desired results are established in terms of specifications for outcome of the process.
Qualification of systems and equipment is therefore a part of process of validation. It is a requirement of food and drug, pharmaceutical regulating agencies like FDA's good manufacturing practices guidelines. Since a wide variety of procedures, processes, and activities need to be validated, the field of validation is divided into a number of subsections.
HVAC System Validation
Analytical Method Validation
Computer System Validation
Cold Chain Validation
Similarly, the activity of qualifying systems and equipment is divided into a number of subsections including the following:
Design Qualification (DQ)
Component Qualification (CQ)
Installation Qualification (IQ)
Operational Qualification (OQ)
Performance Qualification (PQ)
