2014 Lifecycle Approach to Validation of Analytical Procedures Workshop

December 8, 2014 - December 9, 2014


IQ Co-Sponsored Event
Sponsored by USP and AAPS

In the Stimuli article “Lifecycle Management of Analytical Procedures: Method Development, Procedure Performance Qualification, and Procedure Performance Verification,” published in Pharmacopeial Forum(PF) 39(6), USP’s Validation and Verification Expert Panel discussed how the modern concept of lifecycle, based on the Product Life Cycle described in ICH guidelines Q8, Q9, and Q10 and the FDA Guidance for Industry Process Validation, can be applied to analytical procedures.

Through presentations, interactive roundtables, case studies, and open discussions, this workshop aims to help participants learn more about the lifecycle management of analytical procedures. In addition, the participants will be given the opportunity to provide feedback to the advisory expert panel on topics such as what training will be needed, what clarification is required, and how to move forward with the implementation of the lifecycle approach.
