Organisation and Planning for Qualification and Validation
Validation Documentation
Qualification
Process Validation
Cleaning Validation
Transport Verification
Packaging Validation

An EU GMP inspector gives an overview about the new requirements from his point of view.

Background

Since 2001 the Annex 15 has been state of the art for Validation Master Plan, Qualification, Validation, Cleaning Validation and Change Control within the EU. In the meantime ICH
Q 8-11 has been published. The FDA has implemented most of these ICH guidelines and introduced a Validation Process Life Cycle in its Process Validation Guidance from 2011. The EMA has published a revision of its Note for Guidance on Process Validation to implement this new aspects too. This is also the reason why the Annex 15 has to be revised. The first thoughts have been provided in a concept paper. In February 2014 was a draft published and now the final version of the revision is available.

Target Group

Everyone who may be influenced by the Annex 15 revision.
